Ive never seen 6 open. I've heard about 6 being open. I've talked to guys that love it when 6 is open. They sell equipment for 6. I've got and had equipment for 6.


Where the hell is 6 at when I got time

Right off I'll say poo on you. Poo poo poo. I never hear nothin. Now seriously, congrats.

I use a ocfd, not a windom, that's supposed to be 6 to 80. Tuned on 6 pretty well. I've listened on a wire, on an 11m groundplane and both nothin. I do have a 6m steel whip I've considered. Also my tarheel does 6m but I've not tried the steel whip nor the tarheel.
 
Currious, how far can you transmit on 6m in a local setup. For around town hoing out for a drive and such? No skip just local stuff.

Mobile,100 to 150 miles common (good condx)...
I have worked from around INDY to S. of Lexington, KY...to Dayton, Oh...nr. Cincinatti, Oh. ...Danville, IL from East of Indy etc.
One Note: a simple 5/8th's wave 2-meter mobile antenna, will tune as a quarter wave on 6m :giggle: Great for FM/ 52.525 calling freq.
My mobile antenna is equal to a 3/4 wave Center fed vertical...works FB on 6m. A Squalo or HALO is better still for SSB.

    Hello World
  • @ little 161:
    Need some opinions on a good setup for my 95 jeep cherokee
  • @ AF7LL:
    If the antenna leads of an inverted V dipole are at 45 degrees instead of at 180 degrees, what happens to the signal?
  • @ snippits75:
    @AF7LL At 45 degrees it will be omnidirectional. At 180, horizontal, it will be directional.
