10-80 inverted V dipole


Jun 24, 2011
Moved to a new location and am a bit tight on where to put up an inverted v dipole. Wondering if I can mount it up on the edge of my property in the woods which is between the house and just in to the edge of the woods.

Thank much

That's not much information to go on, but why not build it, put it up and try it out? If the antenna is on your property there shouldn't be any legal reasons why you couldn't put it up.

Only you can say whether it "works", using your own standards and experience. Have fun, take lots of notes and pictures, and learn all you can.
