This is one of my very early tries. Bicycle wheel. It worked OK on 40 m. As you can see I've removed the capacitor before it goes into recycle bin.
Here is the current version.
The whole assembly is tied to the timber cross with small velcro ties.
How it performs?Poorly comparing it to my current G5RV at almost the same height.
Conclusions:I guess it is OK if you are desperate to get on the air. Don't expect to work DX. To my very humble opinion: It works as well as piece of wet string (using brine to wet the string in question).
Patrick's VK2PN version of More's law in regard of antennas:
- More wire.
- More aluminium.
- More higher.
- More signal you will put out.
73 to all.
Lucky that I can reuse all the "bits" for next/different project.
