Dipole Project Using Volocity Factor of Coax To Reduce Size

Post by g6ohm on Fri Feb 01, 2008 10:46 pm

Hi all
Want to put up a dipole and you have not got enough room ?
Take a look at this link and get the calculator out.
Heres the link.

http://www.hamuniverse.com/10metercoaxdipole.html

The calculation will also work with other frequencies.
This will work with RG 58 & RG213 coax.

I have not made the antenna yet but will keep you posted.

Go on ave a go !
