Some simple portable antennas for 10 and 6 metres
10 and 6 metres really come alive in the summer. Sporadic-E propagation can make even low powered signals strong at 1000 km or more distances.
10 and 6 metre link dipole
Pretty much the simplest antenna there is but gives exceppent performance.
10 and 6 metre dual band fan dipole
Want both bands at once? Build one of these and become a fan of the flexibility this dipole offers.
Loaded dipole for 10 and 6 metres
Limited for space? Wish to try pedestrian mobile? Need both 50 and 52 MHz operation?
Quick and dirty 50 MHz half wavelength wire vertical
Some hams don't want their home to look like a communications base. They might only have two or three antennas permanently up.
Oblong loop for 10 or 6 metres
Need some bidirectional gain in a narrow space? The oblong loop might be the choice for you.
2 element wire yagi for 28 MHz
A handy project for someone who needs some gain and has trees or poles in just the right places.
Making a 28 MHz vertical dipole into a beam
Here I add a parasitic element to a 28 MHz wire dipole to make it into a beam.
