Good day everyone,
I am in the initial stages of assembling an HF6V with the 17/12 meter
add-ons, but (not the 6M add-on) which I bought recently from another
amateur at a hamfest.
Unfortunately, one of the 67 pf capacitors is broken so I will be contacting
Bencher for a replacement before assembly can continue.
In the meantime:
I have one request and one question at this time for the list members:
Can anyone share any detailed pictures of the lower part of the antenna,
particularly the area of the 80 meter coil and the 80/40 meter coil and
their respective capacitors are assembled? I would also be interested in
seeing a close-in picture of the area where the 30 meter and 17/12 meter
coil assemblies are joined.
In this case the pictures would indeed be worth 1000 words, as the manuals I
am using (HF6V and HF9V) are not sufficiently descriptive for me to
visualize how they should be assembled.
Since this is a HF8V of sorts (no 6M kit) - I also do not have the 17 and 12
meter strips that are referred to in the HF9V manual. Are these truly
necessary for operation on 17 and 12 meters?
I can be contacted off-list at firstname.lastname@example.org for the pictures
requested or for any comments or suggestions on assembling this antenna.
Thank you very much for any assistance anyone can provide.
