Here is how I did it, along with my reasoning behind the design. I have a tall ash tree and was able to achieve an 85' vertical run with an easy bow-and-arrow shot. I elected to build an inverted L a

More radials will reduce losses. Crudely put, they will reduce dc losses at the base and they will also reduce rf losses by capturing some of the rf that is radiated by the antenna but splashes off t

I would strongly suggest that you look at the electrical department at Home Depot. Among their wire accessory supplies, you will find some gray plastic staples. Each one carries two 1 1/2-inch nails

At my QTH in NJ I have the capability to mount a 500-foot, two-line, reversible Beverage running NE-SW. However, I am hesitant to undertake this project because the antenna would be entirely in the w

I certainly believe that having two separate lists would not be helpful to anyone. With a single list, the OT and the Newbie can use the delete key; the former if bored by the need to re-read a well-

Scott, My soil in northern NJ is pretty much like yours in eastern PA. My trees are a bit taller and I was able to get up an inverted L with a vertical run of 85'. I also wanted to work stateside, so

A disadvantage of using a fishing reel to store the line is that there is no easy way to limit the maximum travel of the projectile. Thus the line can end up in a tree beyond the targeted one, or in

A careful reading of Rudy's piece does show that in a situation where you are, and must remain, totally compromised throughout a 180-degree sector, i.e., with zero radials, you can at least pick up f
