Default Multi-Band Shortwave Listener (SWL) Antennas : Windom - Dipole - Random Wire

For One and All,

Multi-Band Shortwave Listener (SWL) Antennas : Windom - Dipole - Random
Wire
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Shortw...a/message/6595

* Multi-Element Windom Wire
- - - Four Fanned 1/4 WL Wire Antenna Elements

* Multi-Element Random Wire
- - - Three Fanned Wire Antenna Elements : 100% + 62% + 38%

* Multi-Element Dipole Wire
- - - Two Fanned 1/2 WL Dipole Wire Antenna Elements


MY CHOICE - Eight Bands On One Coax - The Windom Antenna
Four (4) Wire Antenna Element Off-Center-Fed Windom Antenna.

MODIFIED -For the Shortwave (SW) Meter Bands :
49M + 41M + 31M + 25M + 22M + 19M
[ 63 Feet Long : Tip-to-Tip ]

TOP - Horizontal {Flat} Windom Antenna (Two Wire Elements)
49 Meters - 31 Meters - Tip-to-Tip
38.7 Feet - 24.2 Feet - 62.9 Feet = 41 Meter
62% - - - - 38% - - - - 100%

BOTTOM - Inverted "V" {Angled Windom Antenna (Two Wire Elements)
25 Meters - 19 Meters - Tip-to-Tip - Tips Angled 30* Down
19.7 Feet - 15.1 Feet - 34.8 Feet = 22 Meter
57% - - - - 43% - - - - 100%

RIGGING - Center Mounting Height of 24.2 to 34.8 Feet
Also - This Windom Antenna can be Rigged from the Tips of
the Top Two Elements; with the Center Lower without a
Center-Support-Point. Having a Center "Drop" of about
10 to 15 Degrees; with the Bottom Windom Element Tips
"Dropped" about 10 to 15 Degrees. - TIP - Use a Heavier
Wire (12-14 AWG) for the Top Windom Antenna Elements.

Years ago I made a multiband SW antenna.

I believe it consisted of 6 300 ohm wires in a dipole.

I got fantastic reception with the antenna.

Unfortunately, both the antenna and plans are long gone.

Anyone have construction details on a multiband dipole for SW?

One covering all the SW bands? I believe Monitoring Times
had plans for a SW multiband antenna a few years ago.

Just my luck...
this was before I began subscribing to the magazine.

Thanks and 73.
