Skypper Beam Antenna CB 11m Freeband 10m – Weekend Antenna Project

 

Another simple antenna project. I tried using some bamboo poles and duct tape from Dollarama as a POC. Ugly but it did work out OK at 8 feet off the ground.

Bandwidth is ok but if you want to also cover 10m a tuner is needed. Maybe build it out for 28 Mhz center frequency.

Some gain about 3-4db and estimated F/B ratio of 18-22db.

Now to use some lighter rods and am thinking that the driveway markers would be useful if i can find them in longer lengths.g4zu_s13skypper11m
