RaDAR – The clothes line antenna

During this year’s challenges I really would like to get another R2R contact or two again. Digital modes or CW may help.


I’m contemplating using my roll up “clothes line” dipole / inverted vee antenna. I did a few quick calculations for starting lengths for particular bands. I will make marks on the flex wire insulation for faster band changes.

Single side :

28.060 – 2.54m

24.906 – 2.86m

21.060 – 3.38m

18.070 – 3.94m

14.060 – 5.07m


7.030 – 10.14m

I’ll need two nylon tie ropes on each end.
