Homebrew HF Mobile Antenna Helix type (20m Band)
Due on the very good propagation this lately..i manage to set up my station into my car..FT857D will move out from base to mobile..the antenna will be use is 20m monoband Omni direction Helix type (homebrew)..credit to DAL which a person give effort to make this antenna for me..all info about pre-performance the antenna are shown at his blog..the rest antenna for 10m & 40m still under testing to get the resonants..this antenna need a very good grounding because of the radial/radius wave patterns..so, may be during the pre-testing & the actual when i mount this antenna at my car, all the setting will be vary but not too much (i hope so)..if i can't get the proper grounding at my car then the others way is use Capasitor to get back the resonant..
The worse thing is i miss place my antenna bracket, don't know where i put it before or already give to people..hehe..so, need to wait a few days, to buy that bracket due on the holiday (Chinese New Year)..so, i hope after i get the bracket, all the installation will be smooth..i will update the performance soon after all the installations done..
see u down the long from my mobile station soon..
