ssd's Antenna pictures

These are a collection of quickly taken, barely cleaned pictures of some of my attempts to build antennas. I think I've at least deleted some of the out of focus ones. Some of these are pretty similar, but I kept 'em anyway because sometimes the better ones are washed out on finer details.

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.
