10-20 meters one antenna: beam


Here's another portable antenna project from Simon Stribling (VA7BIX).

In this video, Simon makes a multi-band HF beam covering 10-20 meters.  The antenna can be broken down into several easy-to-carry parts and is suitable for both field and at-home use.

Here are some comments from Simon (VA7BIX):

10-20 Meters, One Antenna: BEAM #hf #hamradio #pota #antenna G'day mates, this antenna is simply mind blowing! YES, it is still in the working stages structurally, but the overall performance of it 'as is', is incredible. I'd love to get your input 'structurally' about this build - so please leave a comment. This has been an incredibly rewarding and challenging exploration in antenna building hahaha. Here's to portable multi-band beams! Happy building mates!
