Biography

Hello I'm using a Extended Double Zepp for 17m 0.6wl high, that's 9.9m or 32.5 feet.

It is positioned broadside to the UK, as you know it will give 3db of extra power only

broadside to the wire.

It used to be an inverted V but I have lifted the legs up to 32 feet and now all is horizontal and works well to the UK, it was made to exact measurements using 0.6389 degrees per element...with 600 ohm feeder all one wire per side.

Will only work on 17 as it's only a mono band antenna.

Up-date the antenna works excellent on 40 with an atu, the elements are exactly .25 wl on 40m



The picture above is 309 degrees that's to the UK, the antenna not yet installed is now broadside to this direction.



Today I put up a Extended Double Zepp for 20m, but it's a vertical it is made the same way as would be for a horizontal but one leg is 34 feet into the sky,. The other element is horizontal and only 3 feet from the ground.

Tuning this antenna was easy as always, it was 2-1 but as I trimmed the feeder down 1/2 a metre at a time as I made this longer it came down from being resonant at 11.5megs then slowly down to 14.200mhz

Early days yet so give us a call if you hear me on 20...73

my qth is 153m asl....
