Can someone give me some help on build plans for a vertial antenna for 10 base radio ?
Space issues limit me to a vertial.
Save your money and make a vertical dipole. This antenna might cost 10 bucks or so. Use some imagination and you may just save a bunch of cash. I have seen anything from old speaker wire to aluminum foil wrapped around PVC pipe used as antenna material.
A dipole is just as good as an a-99, no matter what lies people have told or had told to them about that fiberglass POS. The Imax is not much better than the a-99 in performance. Both are overpriced.
The other end of your QSO will never know you are on a piece of wire.
