ToroidFor the balun we use a water sealed feedbox from Velleman with inside a double Toroid Core TX36/23/15-4C65 from Feroxxcube for the 500Watt version . As for the High Power version we use a double TX58/41/18-4C65 from Ferroxcube.
The mounting consist of 2 aluminium plates 0.5 Cm thick, pre-drilled
Inox Screws and Lock Nuts
The Used material for the screws and locking nuts is INOX to prevent rust.
The Antenna wire we use depends on the version of the Cobweb Antenna. We are using thinner wire for the low power version and thicker wire for the high power version. The wires are coated with a UV resistent coat.
The Feedbox is pre-made with a ferroxcube toroid, clamps, IP67 sealed with 3M coatingZig-Zag Connector
Instead of using tie wraps to keeps the wires in place we use a UV resistent Zig-Zag Connector allready mounted on the spreaders, just fold the antenna wire between the connectors. The wire is also marked so you don’t have to measure anything.
UV resistent clamps to hold the rods in place
The spreaders are from Glass Fiber in a yellow jacket, diameter of 10mm and a weigh of 143gr/m
