This is the parts breakdown for the fishing pole antenna. If the links get stall let me know and I'll update them.
I have cut my wire from 33ft to 25ft to match another antenna design. So far my first contact has been Indonesia. I have a 4:1 balun and a ugly balun to see if I can get more joy from the SWR department with much success. I have also added 4 33ft radials from the single testing one.
Not working the way I planned, but working the way I expected. It's 33.5 ft up and 33.5 f back down in a helical fashion. But 80m is untunable. I'll probably set this up in the back of the truck and use the truck for a radial. I'll still be able to get 80m in an inverted L configuration. I'll do a video on how I pull off that feat. (part 2 here)
I found this article on radials and thought it was interesting on figure 2 the diminishing returns after 16 radials. So what happens if the lengths are divided by half and the number increased by two fold? Like a town house apartment scenario. Similar to my back yard being nesting in on a corner lot. I might test that over the weekend.
