So I'm considering trying to mount a limited rove in. January.
For a rig I'll use my FT991. However antennas is less than firm. I have
a KB6KQ loop and a Diamond DPGH62, both I can easily get up @ ~20-22'. Not
good choices, but any signal is better than no signal.
So I'm sorta looking at building a moxon, quad or equivalent. And I was
also just looking at commercial built as well.
Soooooo, I stumble across on DX Eng, an EAntenna 50DDO-R2. It's ~sorta a
squashed down quad. So I'm thinking about a slightly modified mounting
version. The short boom and height are pluses as I can turn is sideways in
transit. My only real question is ..... Would a traditional dimensional
design be superior and if so, marginal or significant.
