This group exists for owners and prospective owners of the Buddipole
and its offspring, the Buddistick
- both commercial and homebrew versions. We will provide you with any information request you need and invite you to join us in this group who are constantly improving the latest designs of this portable antenna system.
The light-weight compactable Buddipole system is easily the most flexible portable antenna in the world, is capable of being configured from 160m up thru UHF and beyond. BP knows no limits and experimentation with this "Lego" antenna has not yet found its bounds. Buddipoles are in use in the mid-east by military personnel.
You can read about the homebrew version here...
And read about the commercial version here...
We ask that before you post a basic question you first check the FAQs (in Database) and Files Section; likely your question has already been asked. Please keep your topic on the Buddipole system.
We've set the BUG for required subscription approval and moderated messages to prevent spam and redundancy. We'll approve you shortly. PLEASE SIGN MESSAGES WITH NAME, LOCATION, CALLSIGN IF YOU HAVE ONE.
