ALL BAND DIPOLE Mk2 - ALTERNATE CONFIGURATIONS

Alternate antenna configuration the main HF All Band Doublet antenna.


With a view to get better performance particularly on lower frequency bands alternate antenna configuration such as a type of Marconi T antenna can be achieved by simple bonding the two ladder line legs together in the shack and connecting direct to the T-Match antenna tuner, also a type of L antenna arrangement can be achieved by connecting to one side of the ladder line in the shack directly to the T-Match antenna tuner.

The Marconi T antenna and L antenna arrangements are compared with the existing tuned doublet configuration by charting WSPR pings over periods of time and other on air comparisons.
