The 10m 0.64 wavelength ham radio antenna-one of the best.



 

According to UK radio amateur, Colin (MM0OPX), one of the best DX antennas for the 10 meter amateur radio band is the 0.64 wavelength (5/8 wavelength) vertical antenna.

The antenna is easy-to-make and delivers at least a 3dB gain over the 1/4 wavelength vertical.

Colin shows you how to make, build, test, and use this DX antenna.  This antenna is perfect for home or field use. 

You may want to build one for the next ARRL Field Day event.
