Here's another antenna project, aka the Droopy Drawers Dipole. One of many things you can mount on that "poop pipe" on the top of your house. This one consists of more salvaged DirecTV parts and hollow bottom from that patriot 12' antenna someone gave me. (Stay WELL away from those antennae). The radiators are 102" Radio Shack stainless steel whips, unmodified. A closeup of the mount... The business end: An MFJ-347 mounted to the top of the repurposed bottom end of the patriot antenna. 4 turns @ 6" diameter RF choke (NOT a balun...). You can use 6 turns at 4" diameter, too. All I had handy was a 2 liter soda bottle for the form, so you use what you got... Close-up of the mount stuck down the poop-pipe and semi-secured (to prevent unintentional rotation) with more DirecTV dish salvage... The business end of the antenna after mounting in the poop pipe, and weatherproofing the connectors and giving the FRP a coat of "black shellac" for good measure. (and stealthiness?) "Spread Your (not so) Tiny Wings and Fly Away...": Up on the roof with the ButtCrax 2000 (TM) antenna in the background for perspective... And last, but not least, I always have to put a pic of the ButtCrax 2000 .64 Valley-Wide antenna up for good measure! This antenna is relatively broadbanded, covering the FCC 40 < 1.5:1 vSWR and the 10 Meter phone band < 1.7:1 vSWR. This is "as mounted" with no tuning. Trimming those 102" stainless steel whips? No thanks.
