They sell an attachment called a 'Middle buster'. It comprises of a 3 point hitch with a bar about 1 meter in length and a small pad welded to the bottom at a angle. This angle. pitched at 45 degrees

This looks like it is basically made of "hardware store" angle iron. However, I wonder about the blade. It is necessary to use some special alloy of steel? Should the blade be sharpened on the leadin

On 80m each radial will be a very high impedance. On 160m it will add a lot of reactance at least. What you're really doing if you do that is making loaded radials by inserting a shorted, lossy (bec

As long as we are on this subject.What abt wire diameter of the radials.Is there a desired size.Does say #22 work as well as #12. current tarvels on the outside.Just wondering? thanks,john __________

The current divides over the radial field. QRO with one buried #22 radial is probably not a great idea. With a reasonable number it doesn't matter. Physical durability is a greater concern. #22 may n

In general, using wire larger than #18 is for mechanical strength rather than resistance, and even conductors as small as the #24-26 used in CAT5 cable have been successfully used in large on-ground

I don't believe the gauge is all that critical. Mechanical durability is more important than electrical properties. I've used 16 to 22 gauge wire or what ever I had available to use. Four thousand pl

The longer the better to a point. No longer than the height of the antenna is what I have read. Also after 60 radials the return on investment may not be worth it. On 3/7/2017 10:28 AM, Herb Krumich
