Simple Ham Radio Antennas--10/15/20m Trap Vertical Antenna, Part 2 of 4. Post #411,


Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) continues his discussion on how to build a trap vertical antenna covering the 10/15/20 meter Amateur Radio bands. In part 2, Dave shows you how to adapt the coaxial cable trap to the aluminum tubing. Please be advised that aluminum tubing may be expensive in your area. Check metal recyclers, a scrap metal dealer, or a plumbing repair business for scrap aluminum tubing. With a little care and a few tools, you can make low power traps out of coaxial cable and door knob capacitors. Like aluminum tubing, door knob capacitors may be a bit expensive. You may find these capacitors at Fair Radio Sales in Lima, Ohio. For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars. These news feeds are updated daily.
