Haha, I thought I saw these pics on here before, but I guess not....
I wouldn't BUY one of these, but if I made one, I guess I might use one...
I'm sure the wife wouldn't mind the look of it, or the smell from blocking the plumbing vent
The guy obviously doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing… he’s connected the 75 ohm coax directly to a balanced antenna design causing an impedance mismatch. He should have used a balun here. Anyone who’s even thinking of making their own antenna ....... well you’re better off just buying a real antenna that’s precisely designed and not something made out of fire wood!
your right....he is actually selling these things!! I checked...people are eating this up. Jokes on us!haha...if you look he has plans for plywood camper too to go with your new antenna!!haha...too much
Hi weehaggis, take note of which thread I've merged this into and you have your answer!
That antenna reminds me of spy movies in which the bad guys are redirecting nuclear missiles with neat particle beam cannons as their weird, evil, megalomanical, supergenius leader laughs in delight, saying "Good Bye, Mr. Bond!"
Good Bye, hard earned money.
With such tried and true antennas as I've recommended in the Antenna Chart I see no reason for anyone to waste their money on such an iffy product. There are much, much better antenna options available that are known to be reliable and worth the money they cost.
OK....that answers my question.
What is unbelievable is that according to his sales total....he has sold over 53,000 items and has a 99.6% positve feedback count !
( admittedly all 53,000 items are nor antennas.....but of the customer comments I read,there seem to be a lot of satisfied customers).
