Turn your Antron 99 vertical into a DX big gun. Post 1767.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igggHkOQYKQ.

The idea for this video from "N2RRAny" came from a last moment decision to enter the 2011 ARRL 10 meter DX contest. With no 10 meter antenna available, he used his old Antron 99 CB antenna to get on the air.  He added a base plate and 8 ground radial wires to complete this impromptu 10 meter vertical antenna on a cold winter's day.  The Antron 99 seems to work very well on 10/11 (CB), and 12 meters.  So, if you have an old CB antenna in the garage, why not modify it a bit for 10 meters?  At the very least, you get an antenna at no cost. Have fun!
