Tuning of the Antenna
Install the antenna according to the Figure 2.
Angle between the antenna wires should be near 130- degree. Length
of the each wire is 6.0- meter. Turn on the coaxial cable to a
MFJ- 259 or to SWR- meter plus Transceiver.
antenna was tested in my mountain trips. It is showed good result.
I am strongly recommended the antenna for one- day field operation
as well as for several- days mountain trip. Antenna may be designed
as for one band either for several operation bands.
Do shortening the wires by length of the 10- cm by
low SWR. Sometimes it needs to change value of the capacitors
to reach the low SWR. As usual it is possible to get SWR 1.0:1.0.
Multi Band Version of the Antenna
Antenna may be made in a multi band version. For the version antenna
wires are broken into lengths that would be resonance for the
desire bands. Shortening capacitor may be the same for all of
the bands. Turning on of the next band is provided with the help
of the jumper. Figure 3 shows the multi band antenna.
of the antenna begin from the upper band and sequentially is going
to the next lower band.
