Antenna Magic

Interested in very lightweight, low-profile wire beams, loops, and quads for HF? Many of these antennas are ideal for restricted spaces and portable applications.
Ray Jurgens, KQ6RH, has an extremely good site called “Antenna Magic”, which is devoted to antennas of these types. Photos, performance plots, and practical experience on Reflected M beams, VK2ABQ wire beams, quad loops, super lightweight quads, “quickie” verticals, elevated half squares, rotatable self-supporting dipoles, and even the Pheiffer quad is PACKED into this large and informative site.

R.F. Jurgens Communications sells the special “versa-hubs” and other parts which make assembling these antennas very easy, and (of course) you can get your fiberglass here at the MGS website. Check out “table 1” on the Antenna Magic site, then look at specific antennas to determine the materials you will need.
