Spiderbeam 12 metres (40 ft) Fibreglass Pole

After having multiple fibreglass pole failures of the usual 7M locally sourced ones decided to give Spiderbeam a go, purchased a couple of 12M HD poles have to say impressed by the weight and thickness of the sections. A bit expensive but quality costs.

TTS was very quick in sending these also.

Buddipole Deluxe Long Version


As I am very new to the Buddipole and antennas in general, it is probably a little early for me to make a review until I spend a bit more time testing its various configurations. I will definitely get back to you once I can confidently give others a useful opinion.

However, I must say that from what I’ve found so far (i.e. receive only, no transmit), I am very impressed with the Buddipole’s performance from 2 to 30 m.

Palstar AT2KD

Just finished playing with the new Palstar AT2KD tuner and actually read the instructions first.

What a brilliant piece of equipment love it.

The only thing I’m finding confusing is I put 6 m’s on 50.170 MHz.

Now my little YouKits shows 1:1.1 VSWR 49 Ohms impedance.

I first connected the 6 m line to coax one tuned, followed the rough guide settings transmitted a 50 w cw carrier everything was all over the place my thoughts were not to worry adjust things and see what happens which I did.

After having a fiddle the VSWR was at best a needle width under 1:5.1, didn’t worry the big test was putting 500 w into it not a problem the VSWR stayed exactly where it was set.

I also put the antenna on direct coax 2 same reading amp through it no problems.

Problems with my tri bander on 15 m VSWR just to high to work on put the Palstar my mate on I now have the use of 15 m very happy ham.

I hope this email is informative enough it was a very thorough and exhaustive test that I put it through, recommend it to anyone who questions me about it.
