Antennas at N9BT
My HF antennas at N9BT are 100% home brew. These are all wire antennas. For supports I use my house, two trees in the backyard, and an aluminum tube bolted to a fence post.
My HF antennas are:
- 80M (and sometimes 160M): Inverted-L. Max height about 30 feet.
- 40M, 30M, and 17M: Dipoles off the same feed line. Center height about 20 feet.
- 20M, 15M, 10M: Ground Plane vertical. Has three vertical wires, one for each band and uses three conductor flat rotor cable for each of the four radial wires.(note1)
