I decided there were too many pictures here, so I have narrowed it down to one for each antenna, with detailed pictures and descriptions on separate pages.
You can find more antenna designs on my antenna links page.
Antennas attempted: (in order)
|emergency J-pole||fragile and very narrow bandwith; lost in a drawer somewhere|
|two and three element quads||works well, 3 element is lost, 2 element hung with my spares|
|small vhf loop|
|I may experiment more with these soon|
|cylindrical parabolic||proof of concept only, disassembled|
|circular parabolic dish||proof of concept only, parts lost|
|tuned 2m loop||round loop is in my office, use it every day|
|Moxon||70cm is usually with me; 2m I use for simplex nets when portable|
my second HF antenna
|complete; still testing|
