An All-Band Antenna for small spaces. Post 2020

Here's an interesting idea from Ed (KH2I) and the AH2G Club Station in Hagatna, Guam. 

Ed has made a simple vertical dipole antenna that covers all amateur radio bands from 80 meters through 10 meters.  The antenna is easily made with locally available materials.

Here's the complete antenna description:

AN ALL-BAND ANTENNA

FOR SMALL SPACES

Whether for portable, camping, or just for a small back yard, here is an antenna that is quick and easy to erect, and will get you on ALL bands from 80 through 10m.  

THE VERTICAL DIPOLE

What is so special about this antenna?
  • Low cost to construct
  • Single lightweight pole required
  • Ground-Independent  (does NOT requires radials)
  • Efficiency rivals a good vertical with 32 radials (except on 80m)
  • With the right matchbox, it covers 80 through 10m


If you want more information about this antenna, please contact Ed at:
