The construction of a double bazooka antenna...


After some experiments with various wire antennas I decided to use the Bazooka antenna. I was convinced by the high broadband and the low background noise, as well as the use with high transmission powers (continuous wave greater than 1000 watts). No additional QRO-tuner is required! But even extreme snowstorms and icing were no problems for the antenna.

I will install the DBZ80 again before winter if possible.

I have hung up the DBZ40 as a sloper. In the east at the Versatower (16m/52ft) and in the west on the auxiliary mast (7m/23ft). You can see the VSWR diagram at the bottom of the page!

I also hung up the DBZ30 as a sloper. To the north at the Versatower (16m/52ft) and to the south, at the auxiliary mast (8m/26ft). You can also find the VSWR diagram for this antenna at the bottom of the page!

The two antennas are at an angle of 90 degrees to each other! Europe and DX connections are almost always possible with these 2 antennas!
