Try 10 Meters with this Easy Vertical Antenna






12 and 10 meters:
On these higher bands the NB6Zep produces two narrow lobes with gain, separated by 60-80 degrees from each other on both sides of the antenna in an "X" configuration. CLICK for DETAIL Two layers radiate from the antenna giving very good operation for long skip and shorter skip conditions. As on 20 meters, the NB6Zep is very directional on 10 meters.
A diagram showing the current distribution on the NB6Zep antenna system for the major bands is FOUND HERE

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.
