Garden Antennas for HF

March 16, 2012 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club

Years ago, when the UK population was somewhat less numerous than it is at the moment, there seemed to be a little more “real estate” around for UK citizens to have large-ish (or at least long-ish!) gardens.

Since the housing boom of the 1950s and 1960s however, gardens seem to have been ever-decreasing in size.  The upshot of all this is that most of us Radio Hobbyists no longer have large amounts of space into which we can put our HF antennas.

If this sounds like your situation, then this Tuesday, Wythall Radio Club is the place to be!

Callum M0MCX will be giving a talk on growing HF antennas suitable for your garden.   Based on a talk he himself heard many years ago, and added to in the light of experience, Callum will be exploring what it is possible to do in terms of efficient HF antennas in average size gardens.

2030 in the Darts Room at Wythall House – not to be missed!
