My Ham Radio Interests
Theory is when you understand everything but nothing works, Practice is when everything works but nobody understands why.
I try to reconcile theory and practice of this Station so that nothing works and no one understands why

just made a quarterwave antenna from some old 11mm tv antenna tubing, im gonna mount it in a simple v shape to gett a directional antenna for 10 meters... i dont have the space for a beam so i guess ill have to make do whit my findings i the garage. its not mounted yet but im gonna simulate it in eznec before mounting it to gett a general ide of the antenna....
pictures will be posted after the antenna is mounted.

the antenna was tested up against diamond cp6 vertical antenna today and my L 10 meter antenna won whit 2 db... not bad for a homebrew ill say

well just another update on the antenna, i'm not satisfied whit the feed point so a friend and i are trying to make one that serves as a multy purpose center feed point out of a hard plastic that will do up to 3 things for the antenna... it will make the antenna as a one radial vertical, a dipole, and a inverted v if i want... its hard to explain in text but when the center feed point is finished i'm gonna post it so you all can see the "wonder stick"
i'm gonna make it a dual band antenna as well... stay tuned
