    Hey all!

    I do a lot of radio topic watching on YouTube.. I bet you do too!!

    I came across this British amateur, "DX Commander" channel and he's actually pretty damn good. Anyway, not sure if you've heard of his products but this antenna has me thinking:

    He has some great videos on antenna modeling and some of it is starting to make sense to me.

    I think he's pretty damn smart.

    **I don't know the guy nor, obviously, would I profit off anything I post.

    It's basically a non-conductive mast holding a bunch of 1/4 wave wires as vertical radiators. Pretty easy to make without a "kit".

    it is easy to make with out the kit...however they seem pretty cheap (relatively) and if you evan counted your time at 1/2 rate by the time you got all the lengths corect .....i know with folk playing with fan dipoles (which that's all the DX Commander is but vertical).... standard lengths don't count no more ...the longer wires end up shorter and the short wires end up longer..then you alter one wire and it changers anther ... ..
