Photograph 1 sky view of the newly installed G5RV between the condominiums beneath a stellar blue Pacific afternoon.
Photograph 2 is a different perspective in addition I purchased a Spiderbeam heavy duty telescoping fiberglass pole for this antenna. I'm pleased with its construction, sturdiness of fiberglass walls, and rigidness when fully extended. We are pushing into the wild blue yonder reaching for greater antenna heights. It is what the Beach Boys Amateur Radio Club likes to accomplish because of restricted communities.
Photograph 3 taken from ground level looking toward the center insulator constructed from recycled PVC tubing with added mounting hardware.
Photograph 4 is antenna lab with installed G5RV and three band trapped vertical. My next item is an antenna switch.
Photograph 5 is our recycled PVC T-fitting with SO239 connector installed inside the fitting cavity. I cut the #18 AWG at 102 feet or 51 feet per side with 31 feet of 450 Ohm window line feeder and 50 feet of coax cable. The antenna system is matched to my Kenwood TS850S using its internal auto tuner.
Photograph 6 is my revised ugly choke for the three band trapped vertical. I bought a five inch PVC union then wrapped seven turns of coax cable.
One can maintain and enjoy a suburban antenna farm from stealth antenna systems inside the home or modest vertical-to-wire antennas for weekend operations as well.
Ham radio can be shackadelic.
