Has anyone other than myself tried this? YEARS ans YEARS ago I made a full wave wave dipole for 11m. I had it horizontal about 12 ft. off the ground and just about stretched across the yard suspended from pcv insulators from tree branches made of solid #10awg. it had a high swr with no matching device. well... high by cb standards for hamsters it was perfectly acceptable, over 2:1 maybe, I really cant remember... anyway I didnt care becasue I didnt have a tuner and apparently if you read the manual Galaxy says its saturn base can run into a 2:1 swr indefinetely with no ill effects (read the manual, Im not lying). I had mixed results, it was way more narrow than I expected, perhaps because it was so low to the ground. it made my signal lose all its carrier and on the recieving end it was all swingy. but loud. perhaps since it had the appearance of no carrier it sounded all crappy and wooshy and swingy to the reciever. I dunno. I never played with it much after this. I still have it somewhere in the closet. I would like to build a small tuner for it just to see how it would compare to a half wave dipole in the yard... anyone else done this? Does it have any benefit?
