I start building one of the 2 quads that will remplace my monobands
10-15-20m, i still thinking how to support in the spreaders the wires in
the driven element , this one is the most inportant for me, i want to
support the wires with out make holes in the spreader, increase electrical
length with metal clamps or wires to attach in a strong way the wires , and
can resist power around legal limit (most important) or more when the swr
increase in the band limits or during a contest running power
i will apreciate an advice, followin this 4 parameters :
no holes in spreader , not metallic , hi power resistan and small weight.
just for the driver or if this is practical i will add to all the other
i was thinking in delrin insulators like the ones used in 2m yagis, but i
have no idea how much power can handle , glued with resin to the driver .
tnx in advance
