Broad-Band Aerial Update
Short update on the 11m half-wave aerial conversion.
The 4:1 UnUn is placed, that was one of the two options. Actually, this was the easy option, since the UnUn came wound up and ready to use from a surplus dealer.
11m half wafe aerial base portion
The arial, about 5.5m long, w/o any further modification could be matched easily with the IC-703 builtin tuner on the band from 80m to 10m, with the exeption of 30m. I figure, some additional Al-tube extension could solve that problem.
