This article discusses the characteristics of a 102 ft. center-fed dipole antenna strung between two 37 ft. poles. It explores predicted feedpoint impedance variations across different frequencies and the corresponding impact on the VSWR for various feedlines, based on EZNEC antenna modeling software predictions. It also analyses how alterations in element lengths of antennas significantly affect their performance at higher frequencies.
Lloyd Butler VK5BR evaluated the power efficiency of various Z Match Tuner configurations across antenna load conditions, uncovering discrepancies in performance across different frequencies and load resistances.
C1 250pF or more C2 250pF or more L1 31 mH 39 turns, 2 Inches (51mm) Diameter, 4 Inches (102mm) long. Tapped at 20T, 14T, 9T, 5T L2 0.25 mH 4 turns 1.2 Inches (30.5mm) Diameter, 2 Inches long. I used silver plated copper wire for L1 and L2. If you use enamelled copper wire,
By Kees Wiegers, PA5CW (ex-PA3BHS) It looked impossible to get a large beam for 20 meters up a tower, but it was something I always wanted. So after attending a presentation by John Devoldere, ON4UN, of Merelbeke, Belgium, I decided to try and build my own beam. At the presentation, John demonstrated software for designing

Article by Dave N2DS A tuner like this has appeared with some of my high performance radios, such as my #35 and #50 sets. This type of tuner has worked very well with the accompanying detector board to make a nice dx crystal radio. My aim was to put as much versatility into this tuner
