You are looking at a very talented homebrew skyloop HF ham radio antenna.
It consists of:
16g 128 feet of insulated wire with split ring terminals on the ends.
Custom designed and built 2.5 to 1 Balun with SO239 connector.
The setup has been tweeked and tuned to work on 40 meters, 20 meters, 15 meters, and 10 meters (no tuner should be needed, depending on your rig), and 80m, 12m, 17m, and 6 meters using a tuner.
I have included a picture showing the SWR and Theta sweep for this antenna from 6mhz to 30mhz, which was made with an AIM4170C analyzer.
This antenna has been hung and tuned, and tested, and is ready for you to suspend from 3 trees, or 3 PVC pipes even, and add your own coax.
If you are looking at this, you are probably a ham, therefore, check my QRZ page for some diagrams and other info. I have worked most of the
world on this little setup, with the longest being Kenya at about 9,700 miles, using 40 watts.
I am running a triangle horizontal delta loop configuration but you can hang a square if you like, My antenna height is only 6 feet at the corners and 14 feet at the Balun.
I have been asked 'why dont I sell these?' So, here it is.
These are easily made using $25 or $30 dollars worth of parts, but I spend about 2 hours constructing the Balun, then I tune and test the antenna.
The balun works excellent with alternate loops wires also..
2m = 7 feet
10m = 35 feet
20m = 64 feet
40m = 127 feet
80m = 250 feet
160m = 508 feet
This listing includes the loop wire for a 40m installation.
