I'm thinking about using the "hamstick dipole" route to get on 20 meters from my apartment. Does this require two 10 meter hamsticks or two 20 meter hamsticks? Thanks.

I use 2 40M Hamsticks and a auto antenna tuner
and get coverage from 10 to 40 with a 1.1 to 2.1
SWR.  Also its good to use a coax decoupling loop
at the antenna feed point for impedence matching.
Usually 8 turns of RG8X with a diameter of 6-7
inch's works good.   Randy...W7TUT...

you can buy a gizmo made to connect 2 hams sticks at HRO for about $10  and this works well, I tried it against a hustler 5bvt ( 5 band vert) and it was about 1 sunit less on 40 and I changed whips and it was about 1/2 s unit on 10, (closer to full sized I think makes the difference..)  any how it works and is better than nuttin

Hi Randy:  Can you tell me a little more about the 40 hamstick dipole set-up.  I was thinking that an 80 meter one would be the way to get all bands with a z-11 tuner however, when I ran across your post it seemed to me that you had already determined what was needed.  What type of tuner and brand of hamstick are you using?  My first alternative was to consider a Buddipole but I'm trying to get a more versatile system together by using your approach.  Bill  K6LK
