NEW! HOMEBREW BUDDSTICK PLANS

Here is a modular vertical antenna design that several dozen hams have built since I completed the plans recently.   The design uses an elevated feedpoint and an elevated radial, so the antenna is similar to a vertical dipole.   A Loading coil is used just above the feedpoint, and the single radial becomes a part of the radiating system.

This antenna is very efficient.   It works well on any band from 10 Meters through 80 Meters.  Parts are available at most do-it-yourself stores.  Radio Shack has the wire and some of the connectors.   Buddipole.com sells a 9' whip that works perfectly for this design.
