Well after the news abou the magnum having a few flaws in the design.. Im hoping there not to big but have no problems with building a second antenna.. But i feel that my design will work out as i can make mods to it to tune the mast and coil if needed..
And to top it off im strongly considering makinga copper tower 20 or so feet tall next year for the ultimate in tansmission range.. I then can make a better antenna if i feel this design antenna doesnt cut it.. but my goal range right now will most likly be covered by this design without problems if i make the mast adjustable, I took lots of time calculating my coil and making it as close as possable to the providedformula.. if that formula was correct.. the antenna should cover my goal of 5 block radius (my entire small town).. and it will probably hit the two farms out side of town.. there with in yelling distance on a quiet day.
