I bought the extra long whips to be able to work 40 meters better and better is what it does at that lower freq. I have similar interests. I would have thought that whether or not ifeld need an ATU in addition would depend on the antennas you build and what their resulting impedance is. Keep up the reports and videos, i love it 73 s.

Antenna Manuals

All this has happened on the roof of my apartment building. Jose, I wonder if you managed to figure out your impedance matching issues? NVIS works great on 40M. Have you ever tried using the Buddipole basically as a doublet, balanced-fed into a tuner with the whips at full extension and the coils untapped utilizing the tuner for adjustment rather than the antenna elements themselves??

Very nice article with good advice. A tremendous amount of time and effort went into writing this book.

That would certainly do better than a couple of beads. Raising and lower it on a mast would also give you different readings. I will look forward buddipo,e hearing how you get on. Are fied a MeWe user? Or even something in the close proximity to the antenna?

I have lots of notes on my QRZ page. I downloaded, printed it and am reading it. Additional reviews, opinions and comments are encouraged and appreciated. It makes things much easier to check that my setups are tuned properly for best performance.


I found it extremely valuable to put together a table using my word processor which provides me with information on the different coil taps and counterpoise wire lengths.

I am usually up and running within a few minutes with the aid of my analyzer and I could not do without it buddpiole the field. I am a fairly cautious person by nature and have a tendency to procrastinate so I spent lots of time reading and watching videos before setting up my Buddipole for the first time. Generally, I set up my Buddipole near saltwater and only use it as a vertical and I work the world with excellent results.

This has lots of information on the different fielr configurations and their likely impedance values. On each occasion I have worked long distance DX including a contact on 40 metres into California which was approximately 15, kilometres away almost 10, miles! Ih book is aimed at maximizing vield efficiency and your enjoyment while using them. I would suggest even more details on alternative mounting methods.

Still, he tries to go over everything and stay current. Everything is black and white. The analyzer gives you visual feedback instantly as to whether you are on the right track when you set up your Buddipole and is a must in my experience. I have found the Buddipole an immense disappointment! But mainly use the base on fiels.

Your email address will not be published. There is not much attention given to using it with the shockcord mast. I use a Buddipole a lot but mainly build my own bases for Buddipole parts from Ham Universe and the Ham sites.

Getting Started With Your Buddipole

The vertical configurations are the easiest for me to set up and definitely the easiest to tune; give them a try! Medias this blog was made to help people to easily download or read PDF files.


Thanks for sharing your experiences of the Buddipole and your buddkpole Russell.

I’m almost 60, and I do have to closely read the fine print of the charts. It is an antenna that can be used in a myriad of ways and this will often lead to confusion and frustration. This is where the traditional ham creativity comes in.

Buddipole in the Field book by B. Scott Anderson, NE1RD Product Reviews

For me, the benefit of the TRSB was its isolation transformer which prevented RF getting down the coax and stinging me. Thank you for taking the time to post this, Jonathan!! Besides, a un printed book looks a lot better than copier paper in a 3-ring binder.

Firstly, Jonathan, thanks for an interesting article. Thank you for taking the time to post this, Jonathan!!

Antenna Manuals

That would certainly do better than a couple of ths. I receive my first mini buddipole today april 22, and i do have swr Analyzer mjfB i found this site hope to learn more this buddipole on this site! So I just bought a new one this week budddipole with the standard whips and the short 9 foot pole on the tripod i got it running on 20 meters in less than 10 minutes just by following the table for the coil clips and whip lengths that came with it.

Thanks for the previous comments!
