    Doublet is King

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jun 2022

    I am convinced after many years of experimenting with many different types of antennas, that the doublet is the King of the air waves! Especially on QRP or 100 watts, because the 600 ohm ladder line is just so efficient! I have this 160 through 10 fed with 150' of 600 ohm ladder line and it works great! Im using the "Balun Designs" model 1171 with about ten feet of coax from the balun outside my window to my tuner. I also have two other 80 - 10 doublets from Gary that I am using on my farm here. Also with Baluns from Balun Designs. These antennas are the most cost effective way to maximize your signal on HF! Rosario DiPeri KA2Z

    Excellent Non-resonant Doublet

    Posted by AG7K Dennis G. Deaton on 14th Jul 2021

    I have two of these up at 55 feet one east/west the other north/south. One has been up for 12 years! I use them primarily on 160, 80, and 40 but they work well thru 10 meters as well. I gave away my coax-fed resonant dipoles many years ago after trying this antenna and feedline using a high-quality antenna matching network and a quality 4:1 current balun. I also found it works fine (at least for me) to run a short low-loss coax from the matching network through the wall to the balun.

    Outstanding Outstanding Outstanding

    I got 160-10 Meter W7FG True Ladder Line Open Wire Fed Dipole and have been amazed at the quality. We've had several strong storms and it's held up perfectly. I'm a new ham and I could not have gotten on the air so seamlessly without the support and advice I received from Brian. Thank you Trueladderline!

    Fantastic Wire Antenna

    Posted by Bill Chesney, N8SA on 22nd Dec 2020

    I have the 160 thru 10 dipole with 150' of feedline. The construction is flawless. I have it up around 60 feet in trees. It is flat topped with feedline going to my barn where the shack is. I feed it at present with an SGC SG 237 autotuner. I mounted it at the point where the feedline meets the barn. The built in coax on the tuner reaches thru the wall to my radio. So I have only 9 ft of coax. I was able to get on all bands from 6-160. I had to add about 20' of wire to each end of the dipole to get it to tune the low ends of 40, 80, and 160m, but it plays like gangbusters. After 40+ years as a ham I finally was able to work 160m! The guys I spoke with in a group did not believe me that I was not running an amp! I use an IC 7300 barefoot. I will be setting it up with a balun and a HIGH POWER autotuner after first of year. I will come back to update my review then.

    160-10 Meter Dipole is great product!

    Posted by Geo Eveland on 21st Feb 2016

    Had to 160-10 Meter Dipole up since last fall. Is a droopy dipole supported in middle by 40 ft mil surplus mast. Droops to about 25 ft at ends. Has survived our AZ windy season without problem and performance is fantastic. Able to keep regular skeds on 160 with good reports, in addition to working East Coast and Midwest regularly on 75 and 40 Meter AM. On 10 meters, have worked East Coast of the ends getting S9+ reports using Radio Shack HTX-10 on AM and FM simplex. All and all, is great multiband ant. The 120 ft of ladder line is stable, well constructed, and gets my signal all the way out to the antenna with negligible loss. Strongly recommend!
