Testing the W3EDP-mini Antenna using 450-ohm ladder line.


This video from Gil Gruson ("Radio Prepper") shows us how to make a mini-version of the "classic" W3EDP antenna first described in 1936 by H.J. Siegal (W3EDP).

This modification is ideal for small backyards and portable operations.

Here are a few comments from Gil:

This antenna has evolved from the original W3EDP, itself inspired by the ZEPP, and uses an impedance matching section made of ladder-line and a 4:1 BALUN. In this video I go the the Island of St Marguerite by sailboat and test the antenna on the boat as well as on land. Performance is as expected, not great, but it works and is practical, easy to build and use, as well as cheap.

Never leave more money than you can afford to lose on an exchange! DISCLAIMER: The Radio Prepper logo (depicting a microphone) is indeed inspired from a famous flag created in 1775. It is NOTHING BUT a symbol of freedom and independence. It does NOT imply support to any political group. It does NOT imply, represent nor support any ideology with an intent on harming anyone. Freedom means freedom from persecution based on any human trait or belief such as, non exhaustively, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or nationality. The Radio Prepper channel is a technology and science channel with a focus on preparedness and use of radio technology for disaster relief and small group communications in times of need. It is apolitical and open to anyone sharing the same interests.
