From left to right : line isolator / choke (HyEndFed), antenna tuner (Stockcorner, JC-4s), balun (ON7FU – special JC-3/JC-4(s) version) …

450 Ohm twin (balanced) feeder leaving the house towards the dipole center which is at 13m hanging in a tree …

Parts of the antenna setup in the garden …

An overview of the setup in the garden – height of the (2x 40m) doublet is about 10m above ground-level.

The 160 – 10m doublet experiment will last for three months (February – April 2018), and after this period the performance and building quality will be evaluated. After that, I'll move the doublet to its 'final' position … the feeding point probably will be at 10m (approx. 35 feet) AGL.


And what about the results so far ?
