What model is a good fit for a ham radio operator who must operate low-profile, low-power in a dense suburban setting governed by codes, covenants, and regulations?
Let's consider 1.) Set-up and tear down of antenna, 2.) Multiple structures within close proximity of each other, 3.) Equipment footprint is lean that is a transceiver, an antenna tuner or not, a power supply, and a computer, 4.) Antenna(s) are typically compact, lightweight 5.) Height restriction(s) and, 6.) No antenna support other than push-up type masts.
A DXpedition unless the expedition is siege style is a good fit when one begins to look at equipment and antenna(s). I'm thinking in terms of lean, durable, effective, and budget. And I'm looking around our complex imagining my low-profile, low-power operation is much like a DXpedition.
Does anyone have experience with the Mosely TA-32-JR 2-element beam (link)?
There is enough space for beam specifications like the TA-32-JR.
- A turning radius of 13.75 feet.
- A boom length of 6.0 feet.
- Total assemble weight of 14-pounds.
My plan is too support the beam using metal piping with couplers and arm strong rotor the antenna. The base, at the moment, maybe a concrete weight found at home and garden supplies in addition to rope guys.
