Re : dipole help
- Aaah ! You are asking about constructing an "inverted V " not a V
I made a portable 5 band V dipole from small diameter aluminium tubing
a couple of years ago which works very well on bands 6,10,12,15,17. I
had to abandon the 20 metre section because it was too unstable for the
weight it was carrying so the idea of a 30 metres V dipole is a bit
daunting, especially as it would be fairly close to the ground. The
idea of designing and making one was that a V dipole used portable is
more effficient than the normal mobile vertical antenna, which are used
in a portable situation.
I'm patiently waiting for conditions to improve, but the wait seems to
be never ending !
