As always, tuning by noise and an SWR meter is good; using an analyzer is better Thank you for taking the time to post this, Jonathan!! When I first started using my Buddipole I did not have an antenna analyser and I quickly buddipole in the field this.

The assembly is not yet attached to the mast and tripod as this will be done last.

I built 2 element vertical beam and I can go easily as low as 20 buddipole in the field. Portable in bag, the tube and the long bag with tripod. You can buy any parts individually for any projects you want.

Thanks for the enquiry. I have previously used Par EndFedz on 40m and 20m with good results. I hope to gather some S-meter data between these two configurations to demonstrate if this is an effective choice for the budeipole radio operator. A week ago, I gave up on the 10th trip to adjust the antenna buddipole in the field. This further eliminates losses and reduces having to physically shorten the antenna.

Getting Started With Your Buddipole

buddipile Instead of fixing thw to a piece of wood, you can use these holes to fix your versa-tee to a small pole with the help of “2 “U-BOLTS”. Lay out the counterpoise wires with their insulators and additional Dacron lines that will be attached to guy anchor points. You can use it for a vertical, and you screw the telescopic whip on top,buddipole in the field you connect your center pin of the coax to the blue button, and you put your radial on the black one,with the coax shield.


Ih — J Member Spotlight: I have made thousands of contacts in the field with this antenna system. I initially printed a copy of the pdf about a year and a half ago, and used it to mark and write on. I found it extremely valuable to put together a table using my word processor which provides me with information on the different coil taps and counterpoise wire lengths.

I use a little Dacron line threaded through the 4 holes in the Versa-Tee. Yes, the vertical does fhe for me every time when in the field away from the home QTH with a non-existent noise level. I use a Buddipole a lot but mainly build my own bases for Buddipole parts from Ham Universe and the Ham sites.

I receive my first mini buddipole in the field today april 22, and i do have swr Analyzer mjfB i found this site hope to buddipole in the field more this buddipole on this site!

I have tried in a horizontal orientation dipole and twice as a vertical. For buddipole in the field information and for others who would like to built one, here is the link, from Budd W3FF himself who kindly put his plans and all the necessary informations to built one from PVC tubes or bucdipole and some others parts.

Thanks very much for sharing with the forum friends. I know I did. Needing a bit more power and battery life for voice.

I buddipole in the field this when in campsite, and found a really big difference, and the antenna is really easier fieldd match. Thanks for the PDF. Cameron, thanks for the supportive comments and the assistance provided to Jose.

The heights provided by the telescoping masts or shockcord mast are handy, however it is not feasible to think that users can routinely get it to a 25 foot height. One Yahoo Group member recommended raking the coil, but in getting close to the antenna with the analyzer in hand the swr changes usually for the worst. Based on the lowest Buddipole in the field outside of the 20m band, the length of the counterpoise was reduced slightly and the measurement run again. Promoting friendship within the international Amateur Radio community through the cooperative exchange of knowledge and experiences of portable operations in the field.


With this one you can do many things, into antenna projects. Note the telescopic whip is still not attached buddipole in the field. Now I use full size no compromise from 30 meter up to 6 meters in monoband no coils.

This page book tells you everything you need to know about getting the most from your Buddipole and it buddipolee you how to configure the antenna for buddipole in the field HF bands. Thanks for sharing this information on the use of the Buddipole antenna. This means at 40 meter, the 20 meter antenna has minimal affect to 40 meter operation. Keep up the reports and videos, i love it 73 s. Because it is easier on those bands due to the lenght of the elements. As an example, if the lowest SWR is found to be Using my MFJc analyzer I found it even more frustrating to try to tune because as I moved closer to fidld antenna buddipole in the field swr would continuously change.

You can certainly do a lot with the Buddipole! This is where the traditional ham creativity comes in. Buddipole in the field agree that the Buddipole is immensely interesting and that preparation in terms of testing before going afield is the key.
