Re: Power cord?

Don Wilhelm <w3fpr@...>
 

Doc,

If what you have is an extension cord, the wire is likely to be soft-drawn stranded copper.
I would not use it for antenna wire because it will stretch.
The velocity factor of insulated wire is less than that for non-insulated, so if you are using it for an antenna radiator of a specific length, you will have trouble on both these points.

In any case, I would recommend stripping off the sheath and using only the single wire conductors.  It seems to me like a lot of trouble just to use something that you have on hand.
It may be easier to burn off the insulation in a fire and sell the reclaimed copper and apply the proceeds to the purchase of good antenna wire.

I know this seems like 'heresy' to many 'economically minded' hams, but unless your time and effort are not of value, I would suggest that you purchase new hard-drawn #14 wire for your antenna resonators.  The Wireman (www.thewireman.com) has their 541 wire at $0.23 per foot, or if you prefer copperweld (nasty twisty stuff), they have their 511 at $0.24 per foot, or their 502 (with less copper) at $0.13 per foot.

BTW, National Electrical Code requires #14 wire or larger for permanent antennas.

Subject: Re: [4sqrp] Power cord?

 

A couple of thoughts:

It will be way too heavy to deploy.

Connecting the wires at the ends to create a single length won't work like you want for RF.

To prove it out, You can try it out by wiring up jumpers with the whole cord first.  Then, if you think it is working like you want, move it and check it again.

Doc,

My two cents worth - Sure, it would work, but why not strip the sheath off then you would have three potential antennas?  Good luck which ever way you decide and let us know what you come up with.

RMRc today 2200z 14.0625 and

Dale Putnam
 

RMRc today 2200z 14.0625 and 2230z on 7.0625 at YOUR speed.

Billed as a slow speed cw practice net.. it has actually been very beneficial to have
the checkins come in at their most comfy speed.. what ever that may be. NCS will
match your speed... but be carefull.. he will sometimes speed up just a word or two a minute.
And if the fellow ahead or behind your checkin... is faster.. instead of tuning out.. stay tuned in and
listen to a bit faster.. you get exposed to fast, slow, perfect and, as in the case of the NCS,.. not so perfect
cw. It all works, to improve YOUR ability to copy.
Check in and match wx.. and what's new on the bench? or DX? or WAS Standing.. or DXCC standing?
Or swap club numbers? We're up for about anything.. have something that needs a new home?
We'll talk about it all.. maybe not all on the same day... out of courtesy to the next checkin, but make notes,
we'll cover it all.

Look for you, then!!

Have a great day,
