From VE6WR WANTED: Two 30+ft poles OR Vertical Antenna
on: November 23, 2010, 19:49

Need a couple of poles to put up a multi-band dipole. Or, would be interested in purchasing a vertical multi-band HF antenna.


Welcome to the CAARC web site. I have been a Ham since 1978 and am active on most modes from HF to UHF Satellite communications.

Look at top rail, for chain link fencing, can get it at local hardware store. Comes in 10 & 20 foot sections and plug together, will have to guy at the middle 3 guys and use the antennas for top end guys. Worked well for me until I got a tower.

Fiberglass sucker rod works. It is in 33' sections, and has threaded ends to screw into a ground anchor.

They are quite whippy, and need to by guyed. I suspended a full wave 40 meter quad loop between a tower and a guyed sucker rod upright (when I had some real estate). Was fb.

You could also spiral wind or coil load a vertical rod like this. Three verticals in a triangle with a phasing network would be interesting to play with.
