Re: [IRCA] Antenna Options
In an effort to save space and the appearance of my backyard, I'm
thinking of putting up just one antenna up for both MW and Amateur
Radio. I could put up an 80m Dipole, but I might even see about a
160m Dipole. Any thoughts or opinions on the matter would be
appreciated. Does anyone else use just a single antenna?
The simplest way is one of the vertical antennas with a ground system. It
would work for both receive and transmit in the ham bands. Example:
Google "ham vertical antenna" and there are many options.
FWIW, I've used a simple vertical in the past and it's worked well. It's
omnidirectional and could potentially be combined with another antenna
through a phaser for nulling a pest.
