Antenna Projects

Shooting your signal into the ether

The best rig and highest power you can generate are almost useless without a great antenna. A maxim among radio operators is that a cheap rig and great antenna is better than an expensive rig and a lousy antenna.

Your antenna is the first and last link between you and the propagating radio waves. This depends on the tradeoff in your budget and your building skills. Don't cut corners here!

Buy or build? There are great options in getting a commercial antenna, with some good products having both quality and value. There are also some duds to be found on that route.

If you can build an antenna, with quality materials and some dexterity, you can have the best of all possible choices.
