Antenna Facts and Specs and more

ANTENNA FACTS:

The beginning of a great antenna and transmission line resource.

ANTENNA SPECS:

This page is dedicated to length specifications for dipoles, folded dipoles, inverted V's, verticals, ground planes, quad loops, delta loops and extended double zepps.  You will also find feed line lengths to SWR match the band.

JPOLE DOUBLE HEADER:

This is a link to the JPOLE DOUBLE HEADER page. The J-pole has been around for years in one form or another. I like to use copper pipe for my J-poles as copper can be easily soldered and it is more resistant to corrosion than other materials particularly if you paint it. This is a good inexpensive antenna with gain that is easily built with a minimum of tools.
