Tilt-over Vertical Antenna I am working on
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:20:28 AM »

Hi folks!

Here are some photos of a tilt-over vertical antenna I am working on. I expect to be able to use it on 80 and 160 and hopefully even 40. It is ready to go; just need to dig a hole and fill it with mud.

What is that gold ball made of?  Where did you get it?

Brass toilet bowl float??  That's my guess.  What will the total height of the thing be?

Yah, I guess it looks like a toilet float...it's really a flag pole thingy from the flag pole store!
