Default My new multi band dipole

This is the beggining of my new 10-80 meter multiband dipole.
The antenna is all connected and now have to get some spacer material. Think I will use 1/4 or 5/16 " fiberglass rods.

Thanks to the great guy's at www.qrz.com for their help.

Default Work?

Have you used the antenna since your last post? What is your report on the antenna?

Which one?
I built so many in the last month it is hard to keep up with,
This one loads from 10 to 80 plus in between with great success.
Using a tuner on the odd bands.

If you view the thread called "my shack" you can see it up. It is in a bicycle wheel configuration.

I built a six meter dipole that had a similar design to that except I used copper tubing and had it mounted on a flat piece of wood

Buddy I am useing a homebrew multiwire dipole that was made by a ham and used and then he gave it to me when I got my license. I it was kinda mesed up and I had to do some work on it. PVC was used as spreaders to keep the wire apart. It works well but it ain't purty. I like it a lot and its only up 25 feet. I want to get it up higher as soon as I can. Yours should work well. have you got it up yet?

Well, except for 60m, it can be a bit tricky to tune there. Tunes 160 through 6 meters though.
