Phased Vertical Array on 20M. Post 1926.

If you want a little more "punch" from your 20 meter vertical antenna, why not build Bob's (VK5FO) end-fire phased array of 2 X 1/4 wave length elevated ground plane antennas?

Bob walks us through the general theory, construction, and alignment of this directional antenna which can give about 3 dBi gain over a single 20 meter monopole vertical antenna.

Most of the materials for this phased vertical array can be obtained from your local building supply outlet, neighborhood hardware store, or through a few online vendors. A basic, simple, and fairly inexpensive way to get some gain from a vertical antenna.
