Re: MicroVert Antenna
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Previous wire antenna farm had loop for 160 roughly 560 feet. Competed with those running maximum power.
Yes, I was happy. Now everything is scaled down to a 43 foot dipole wrapped around three sides of building. When weather warms up will
put up an off center fed with 4-1 balun. (My spell check selected balloon, baling and blain)
Building a 20mm QRP rig and placed a semiconductor backwards. Have tried the usual methods, solder sucker and wick to no avail. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

More wire has been good for me as well. My radios vary from 5w to about 70w max output. I insisted on having tuned antennas but gradually have deviated and gone to the more is better. Our (xyl is a ham too) latest creation is an 1150 foot horizontal loop fed into a homemade 4:1 current balun into coax back into a manual tuner.
