Wondering what to do with your new Amateur Radio license? Here’s everything you need to know about Antennas!
This email provides you with articles and advice from experienced hams to help you get active and on the air.
The Best Antenna for the Job
No single antenna works for every station. Whether you’re mobile or at home, choosing an antenna depends on what you want to do with your station, how much money you’re willing to spend, and any restrictions you may encounter with your property. This article helps you determine what the best antenna is for the job you are doing.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to extend your range is by using a ground-plane antenna. This antenna has three easy-to-follow steps, with a simple mounting process. Get on the air with increased range by checking out the article and building your own.
Antenna tuners can be critical components for some ham stations as they can match the impedance of an antenna system to the impedance a transceiver needs to see. Here’s a closer look from Steve Ford, WB8IMY, on how they work, how to buy one, and other considerations.
Antenna Analyzer — A test instrument designed to measure the impedance and/or standing wave ratio (SWR) of an antenna, an antenna and feed line combination, or other circuit element as a function of frequency.
