My 160-10m Doublet Dipole Antenna

Doublet

This is my home-made 236ft Doublet Dipole Antenna for 160-10 meter band. I feed the antenna with a 12 meter long FLEXI 450 ohm Ladder Line, and I tune the antenna with my CG-3000 remote antenna tuner.

I have connected one side of the FLEXI 450 ohm Ladder Line to the “Hot shoe” of the tuner, and the other side to the GND connector on the tuner.

This setup is working surprisingly good, and the very first station I worked after getting the antenna up in the air was W1AW/3 on 30m band running QRP 12W with my Elecraft KX3 Transceiver.
