Antennas / Re: Yagi Antenna
« Last post by richard-ke4bqi on July 25, 2019, 10:54:27 PM »
I have made more than 20 yagi antennas for 2 meters and 1 for 6 meters and found that the gamma match was the easiest to tune and construct. I still have 8 aluminum and stainless gamma matchs left over from classes antenna construction class I had about 15 yrs ago.  The grounded metal elements were the simplest to make.
I used u channel aluminium stock and 1" square fiberglass stock for 3 of them.

Antennas / Re: Antennae base
« Last post by ron-kk4hgy on April 04, 2019, 03:02:31 PM »
I would be very cautious about trying to tilt a 50 foot tower.  At one time Rhon towers said that 30 feet is the max for Rohn 25.  Is this Rohn 20 or Rhon 25?  I suggest you do a search on tilting towers.  One suggestion I saw was to pace a telephone or power pole next to the tower and connect tables and pulleys at the 20 foot level.  Also type of antenna(s) you plan on putting up there is a factor.
