Climate situations have been good and the 6m Delta Loop with the two:1 Balun was put in in its testing location. The antenna is roughly 25′ up and fed with LMR-400 cable.
Within the authentic put up, I didn’t speak in regards to the adjustments within the help pipe. After chopping the 1/2″ PVC pipe to six.5′, a 1/4″ gap was drilled in every finish. A small bracket was printed to connect a 6″ lengthy PVC pipe to the center of the help pipe. A information wire is used to assist maintain the 1/2″ PVC pipe from drooping. This additionally supplied a connection level for a rope or cable to hoist the antenna.
After somewhat tuning, an SWR of 1:1 was achieved.Watch out to not trim off to a lot at a time. It’s straightforward to over shoot and have so as to add wire again or begin over.
By likelihood, a VHF contest was occurring and loads of exercise for testing. The FT-891 has not had any points with the Delta Loop. The antenna is being related on to the transmitter with no tuner. If testing retains going properly, there shall be an up to date put up with extra specifics on the house brew 2:1 balun.
