Dear Radiofriend Welcome at my personal page, welc@me

My name is Jan, I like to make DX with my homemade antennas.


My 1e project was a 3 el Cubical Quad, because we can not purchase materials I decided to make it from Bamboo.
The 3 element quad was too big and too heavy for me to put it up so I decided to change it into a 2 el Quad.

The 2 el bamboo quad
The antenna is 5 meter from the ground
The 2 el bamboo quad, I made a shorter boom and changed lenght of wires to obtain a better SWR, thanks to Dave 30DA016 for helping me out !
The antenna is still 5 meter from the ground and works great, via LP worked West Indies with big Signal Reports, about 16-17.000 km from here.

My main Antenna: 2 Element Home made Bamboo Delta Loop

I changed the delta loop lately, I took off the 75 Ohm dirty balun, now the antenna is designed for use directly 50 Ohm, I use only connector for plug and made a choke in my 50 Ohm coax. Thank you Dave 30DA016 for calculations.

Portable 1 El Delta Loop

I just finished my new project, I can use this antenna to take portable anywhere, very easy to carry with you. the most longest pieces are at most 1 meter long, made of bamboo, fishing rod (fyberglass) and PVC parts including old electricity wire about 1.5 mm thickness.
Also used dirty balun home made of 1.80 mtr 75 Ohm coax.
The goal of the Choke Balun is to ensure no out of balance energy moves through it. As the name applies, the choke balun sees any extra current flowing back along the coax as out of balance and, through inductive impedance, blocks it and forces it to stay at your antenna.
Hope to hear you when I am portable.

Hi Jan.

A great pleasure to have worked your station today from my mobile here in New Brunswick, Canada. As mentioned in my email to you, today was my first contact into the 153 division and it was fantastic to do it from the mobile!
All the very best from eastern Canada Jan, I hope to work your station again another time.
