The antenna system for 10m currently consist of a 6/6el monoband stack and a 6el monobander @46m. This 6/6el antenna system is thought out to be the 2nd antenna system on 10m when we in the future hope to add a big stack in another rotatable tower. This antenna system is located on a small rotatable tower which is telescopic and has got an Emotator 1103 turning it. The antennas are stacked at 15 over 9.5m and below you can see the stack responses to the important directions. The 6el monobander which is located at 46m in the 60m tower, is thought out to be used when there are very limited propagation’s, during band openings/closings when very low angles are needed.
The antennas are CUE DEE but with rebuilt feed point system from gamma to hairpin.
The 6/6el antenna system is fed by a 7/8″ cable and the jumper cable up to the tower consist of about 8m 1/2″ superflex coax. The 6el sitting at 46m in the 60m tower, is fed with 1/2″ hardline and jumpered over to 3/8″ superflex which goes out to the beam.
Plans are to add a 7/7/7/7el OWA stack as main antenna system, hopefully in the summer of 2013-or 2014.
