HF Antenna Advice Requested
by Joe Chmelik KK6JUN
(San Diego, California.)
I need some advice on what kind of HF antenna to purchase.
This is where I want to install my first HF all band antenna. Can someone recommend a good match for this kind of area restriction? The front of the house faces West, so I would only have East, North and South signal paths.
My thought was to install a wire antenna in the front of the house to use for getting west stations and using a antenna switch, then using the back antenna for hitting the other directions. I was also considering putting in a splitter off the back antenna, to use in case my radio room gets too warm and just bring my rig onto the deck about 15 feet from the antenna. Would that be a good idea?
Attached are pictures of the steel vent pipe being used for my washing machine.
