The secret is using the analyzer and practicing in my back yard first to make sure that when I go portable little time is needed to set on.

Plus, you can always use a coil if you want to. I want to start out learning how to use it as the Buddistick version, but obviously I will want to learn how to use it as a dipole.

Nice video and nice setup.

I have lots of notes on my QRZ page. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.

But if if I had to use it as a inn for it to work, I have much better, quicker and dependable verticals to use without all the fuss. I done some experimenting to see if I could have my coil taps set to points where for ease in the field I could extend the whips fully.

The trick with my set-up was to get the longer whips. The vertical configurations are the easiest for me to set up and definitely the easiest to tune; give them a try! Needing a bit more power and battery life for voice. The vertical antenna works exceptionally well, buddipoe when utilised near saltwater and I can certainly testify to this from experience in the field. It is an antenna that can be used in a myriad of ways and this will often lead to confusion and frustration.

The heights provided by the telescoping masts or shockcord mast are handy, however it is not feasible to think buddipile users can routinely get it to a 25 foot height. I agree that the Buddipole is immensely interesting and that preparation in terms of testing before going afield is the key.

Thanks for the comments! Keep up the reports and videos, i love it 73 s. Could you tell me where you found this little gem? I started with rhe home brew version and migrated thw several variants of the commercial line. I just like books better that have full color photographs and charts. If you are anything like me then being spoilt for choice can lead to confusion and a certain amount of procrastination!

I already have verticals that actually work. When I first started using my Buddipole I did not have an antenna analyser and I quickly regretted this.

Getting Started With Your Buddipole

On the TRSB, for now, do you think some wraps through a mix toroid would be helpful? I am sorry to read of your frustrations with the Buddipole. If you like a portable set thd the Buddipole Deluxe Long is a good antenna system. Bad cable or connector or something? You can certainly do a lot with the Buddipole!

I found it extremely valuable to put together a table using my word processor which provides me with information on the different coil taps and counterpoise wire lengths. Other than these comments, I like the book and feel that it would be a valuable addition to your library.

I downloaded, printed it and am reading it. I wonder if you have a fault somewhere? The analyzer gives you visual feedback instantly as to whether you are on the right track when you set up your Buddipole and is a must in my experience. This page book tells you everything you need to know about getting the most from your Buddipole and it shows you how to configure the antenna for most HF bands.
