After few days of Antenna’s maintenance I have reassembled and completed the 2 elements moxon for 40m, now it is a wonderful and pile-up breaker antenna, as my usual!!!! I have contact, without problems and waste of time, 3D2MJ Fiji Island, both in 40m and in 20m phone, he had a nice real 59 in 40m.
Hi! Now also the 40m two elements Moxon is on the tower. I have used the same boom of my Delta. The KD6WD’s site is a very good resource to build a Moxon antenna. You can download a Win software that provides all measures of the Moxon rectangle. The Moxon antenna concept is very revolutionary, it consists to fold part of the element in the point of minimum current flow. So the dimensions of the […]
I will spend 2 weeks in holiday. I’m going to Cortina D’Ampezzo, a beautiful place on Dolomiti mountains, in the North-East of Italy. My location will be at 1500m on the sea level. I’m bringing with me a YAESU FT-897 with some portable antennas. I have build a multiband fishing-pole antenna and a single-element delta loop for 6m and 2m. I will upload some photos of those installations. In case of some portable activities I […]
Hi guys! The test of my antenna in finished! I can said that it works very fine!!! I have changed the name of the Monster, hihihihi, now it is DXbuster….This is the extract of my log in the last days:
Ottimo e divertente contest nostrano. Si è rivelato un ottimo laboratorio di test della mia delta loop, permettendo di sperimentare sia situazioni propagative molto diverse e variabili in maniera repentina, sia per studiare i vari skip del segnale sulla corta distanza sfruttando i rimbalzi offerti dai due mari italiani: Adriatico e Tirreno. Il sabato pomeriggio è stato di rodaggio! Con molti cambi di puntamento ho compreso che era più semplice raggiungere il nord italia per […]
The first step of my new big antenna system is done! The monster is up and work very very fine!!! Now I’m waiting for the second step: build a 2 elements moxon for 40m. I’m waiting the fishing poles… The delta loop works very fine with optimal S.W.R.. I think to test it during the 10m all italians contest of this weekend. ——————————————————————————————————————————————- Ok, la delta loop è finalmente su! Le prestazioni sono ottimali! In […]
