O.K. I took a Junction box or some kinda electrical box that you can remove the caps by bending it to break. Anyways, I mounted on a Gumball mount into one of the holes, used the wire clamp and inserted one of the groundplane rods from my Starduster and clamped it into the junction box, then screwed on my homemade fightingsticks from my starduster groundplane rods. It is in a "L" like configuration. I was wondering if this will make it directional or omni????
Both elements are the same lenghts. I used my SWR meter and it read 1.5:1 SWR.
All I wanted to know if it will be directional if I have only one element on one side of the antenna?
Most of the interference/RF interference with this setup have disappeared as when I had the partial stardust up. But, just waiting for some condition to test it out if it really works well.
Thanx, James. Ill try to get some pix by tomorrow.
