Title: qrp dummy antenna
Post by: N5JYW on July 28, 2001, 10:05:58 AM
I am building an SST transceiver. The instructions call for the use of a dummy antenna. I am interested in building sometthing simple, but effective, for this project only, The antenna connection is BNC. Any specifics? TNX--Bob

I posted you in the homebrew section but to go further, take the two resistors and solder one lead to the center of a chassis mount BNC connector and solder the two remaining leads to the ground side.  Makes for a very small and compact dummy antenna.  73's and good luck!

If you use the MP-1 with the tripod, it makes for a good dummy antenna, too. (hi hi)
