Anteenna not strictly necessary, I find it helps keep things neat if you slide a few narrow pieces of heat-shrink tubing over the coaxes to keep them together. Representative APR variable Quite acceptable for the average transceiver.

cobwebh Make 2 of these and link them together via 2 cable-ties — The ends of both are then soldered in the following way: Good bit of kit. Expect about KHz of 3: The coax needs to have a characteristic impedance of 25 ohms – something which is not easily available; so each balun is actually wound with two 50 ohm coaxes which are connected in parallel at each end – inner to inner, braid to braid.

Feedback on mcr from others who bought this item. The cobweb antenna meets the requirement nicely – it comprises 5 parallel dipoles bent into a square shape and mounted on a support structure made of fibreglass poles. Easy to set up works well X Previous image. One common balun feeds five dipoles which are folded in a roughly square shape, only one feedline is required. Mouse over to zoom – Click to enlarge.

A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging where packaging is applicable.

In stockshipped in 1 or two days. Typically, when forming a dipole into a square shape, the impedance presented drops to around 12ohms — Hence the use of a 1: The base plate as well as the tube supporting the balun is made from aluminium, the tubes carrying the dipoles are made from glass fibre. A drive-over base and some swaged poles make a nice setup for operating from the car.

You have now created a single transmission line with a Characteristic Impedance of 25 Ohms Now wind 8 turns of this twin cable onto a FT toroid to form a 1: Lay the two coaxes alongside one another and connect centre-to centre and braid-to-braid at each end. The dimensions shown next to each wire are the distances from the outer-end of the PVC tube. This amount is subject to change until you make payment.

This means that you can move the position of them quite easily if you need to make changes. I have opted for the G3TXQ version in this case.
