I figured on using P.V.C. pipe in the center for a framework to support the outside. A tee here and there and some of that insulating foam in a few spots to fill in the gaps. The material I have is somewhat rigid so I believe at ground level there won’t be many issues..
LOL.. I know all about that tuning! Try tuning an antenna on a platform.. 8’x10′.. 20′ off of the ground on a short step ladder..
My goal is to design an antenna that is broadband without the need of a “tapped” coil for tuning. The tuning can be done at a distance from the antenna to avoid such problems. No power for the tuning circuit required and it’s center loaded..
Soon as the weather breaks, I plan to construct my ground area. I’ll be using electric fence wire and at least 60 radials. If it doesn’t go too bad, I may go for 120..
Isn’t playin’ fun.. 🙂
