||by Vic Misek, W1WCR. This is the
Classic book on Beverages, their design, installation and use! Misek
delves in to the secrets that make the Beverage such a desirable antenna
for lowband use. Misek talks about single and double wire designs and
gives helpful hints on how to design for maximum efficiency. Covers wire
size, height above ground, length and how to match the antenna to the
feedline. Includes construction ideas that have been tested and work.
Misek discusses ways to eliminate stray noise pick up and how to
maximize front to back and front to side rejection using LCR networks.
Every low band DX'er should have a copy of this in their shack. Mine is
well worn and often referred to! |
