“Real world antenna comparisons
I don’t have many choices for my antenna at my residential QTH. I have an80m OCF Dipole (aka Windom) hung from the peak of my roof at about 25ft and a ladder line fed 40m Doublet folded around in my attic at about the same height.
Generally I’ve been using my 80m Windom for most contacts because it is resonant on 7 bands and I don’t have to tune it. I’ve had a number of on-air ragchews where I switch antennas and ask for signal reports but it is often a hassle and I don’t like to interrupt a ragchew to ask for that sort of comparison.
So how do I know which antenna is better for certain bands and directions?...READ MORE
