During recent range testing of a hexbeam I needed a horizontally-polarised resonant antenna covering 20m thru 10m which could be assembled and disassembled quickly and easily. The only drawback with the G3TXQ single-wire version is having to make-up the 1: See all mcr has no other items for sale. Postage cost can’t be calculated. The wires are terminated in solder tags which fit over 4mm bolts screwed through the terminal box.

The alternative arrangement I used was to combine the impedance transformation and balun functions into 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.

The following table lists the wire dimensions that were used each side of the feedpoint, the distance from the centre of the structure to the wire corner, the minimum VSWR, the 2: You’re covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee if you receive an item that is not as described in the listing.

Terms and conditions apply. Due to the square arrangement of the dipoles the overall size is very small, just by cm. Sign in for checkout Check out as guest.

Please allow additional time if international delivery is subject to customs processing. Lay the two coaxes alongside one another and connect centre-to centre and braid-to-braid at each end. Here’s a SWR plot measured at 25ft above ground. Some folk have had difficulty visualising the balun construction, so here are more details; click on the cobaebb for higher resolution photographs.

At the other end of the assembly right side of the ‘photo connect the coaxes in series: The “scramble-wound” air-cored balun often installed within the terminal box may not provide much choking impedance unless the dimensions and winding style are carefully controlled The use of twin lead makes it a little more difficult to assemble and disassemble the antenna if, as I do, you prefer to store the wires separately The alternative arrangement I used was to combine the impedance transformation and balun functions into a 1: It was a experiment into compact multi-band HF aerials for the higher bands and various solutions existed: See all condition definitions – opens in a new window or tab End 2 is the one you connect to the SO socket.

Computer modelling of this arrangement shows that one result of bending the dipoles is that the antenna is close to being omnidirectional in azimuth, with a Free Space eccentricity of about 4dB; a less attractive result is that the feedpoint impedance drops to around 12 ohms at resonance.


This makes mine cm square. You have now created a single transmission line with a Characteristic Impedance of 25 Ohms.

Add to basket. However, the folded dipole approach to matching has some disadvantages: Now repeat all of the above steps to form a second 1: The wire tension keeps the whole assembly in place; this arrangement allows the antenna to be assembled and broken down very quickly. See the seller’s listing for full details.

No additional import charges on delivery. These small sizes and the small packing size of 11 x 11 x cm makes this antenna well suitable for vacations, fielddays, SOTA and other portable activities.

Why is this review inappropriate? April 24, in: Get the item you ordered or your money back. Expect about KHz of 3: Please note that the SWR is referenced to the coax connector on the balun box; in practice the SWR bandwidth will be better than that shown because of losses in the feedline.
