I spent the day at my friend Larry's qth ...
Helping him install his first ever Low Band Receive Antenna.
Its a 300 ft reversible beverage antenna.
The Transformer and end termination box
was purchased from Bruce ( K1FZ )
Below is the link to Bruce's website
Here is Larry (AE4LD)
checking to see if the post at the termination end
of the antenna is level.
As you can see...
Larry takes no short cuts
as a transit was brought in to
line up the beverage supports.
Here is the first type of support.
A 10 ft section of PVC pipe ...
with the antenna wires spaced 12 inches apart.
( Notice the big Opti-Beam in the background )
Electric fence insulators were used on the trees
Also spaced at 12 inches.
Electric fence insulators were used on both ends.
The two legs were then attached to a tree via 2 eye bolts.
The transformer will be mounted between the 2 wires.
It will be attached to to 2 antennas and also to a ground rod.
The 2 wire termination box will be placed between the 2 antenna wires
It is also connected to a ground rod located beside the post.
The antenna itself was made of electric fence wire.
