To compliment their range of excellent HF aerials, (I use one, the’re good, they work – G8YPE), M0CVO offers a selection of VHF and UHF antenna. More information on their website [su_button url=”http://www.m0cvoantennas.com/apps/webstore/products/category/1494822?page=1″]M0CVO Webshop[/su_button]

The Phoenix 4m Dipole

This 4m dipole was designed as a club project for the Phoenix Radio Club to use with a bulk purchase of 4m converted “PMR” radios. No claim is made as to the originality of the basic design- a dipole is a dipole- although the design has been engineered for easy assembly and to give repeatable results.

Portable HF Antenna for the field day

Antennas/PortableThis article describes a project of asymmetrical hatted vertical dipole, a portable antenna that can be used for field day operations, sota, campings or even for fixed installations. This is a freestanding 20-10m antenna that is really easy to build, easy to tune and relatively easy to carry….

Caged Fan Dipole Antenna

Antennas/Fan DipoleThere are a large number of antenna designs for HF. One choice out of many is the fan dipole. The ability to transmit of multiple bands without needing a tuner (and even more with a tuner) is a very desirable factor in choosing a versitle antenna for HF….
