The iMini-Whip HF,VLF active RX antenna,10kHz to 30MHz SO-239 (with RF isol. trans.) RA0SMS

I purchased a mini whip from the usual on line auction site form a Russian radio amateur   RA0SMS. I couldn’t buy the parts and make this in the UK for the price he was advertising. So I decide to give it ago and made a purchase. 2 weeks delivery was very quick and the postage was included in the price. This is now 45 feet up on the mast at the end of the garden to keep it away from any noise source. 80 meters and up it is brilliant for such a small antenna, but the 160 meter band is spoilt by the local AM stations. They appeared to spoil the reception all the way up the band.

Todays antenna

My antennas are always changing but today when I wrote this I only have 1 antenna.
I have a 260 foot doublet @ 50 ft for all bands.
The Wellbrook loop for receiving on 160 meters. My main bands I use are 160 meters and 80 meteres.
I make all my wire antennas and feeders.
Below shows the construction of my 600ohm open wire feeder
In the downloads section I have many manuals for different radios that I have collected over the past years as my radios have passed through, also a section on antennas, baluns and open wire feeder of all types. All these are in PDF format so easy to download.
There is also a software folder with some free ware software that I have collected for my own personal use. Its all unlicensed free ware. Ham radio deluxe early versions are also available. I update these from time to time.
