I was not expecting too much due to its small size and I have to admit I am very impressed with this antenna and have had positive results and signal reports. I have this antenna installed only about 7m above ground in a Horizontal configuration due to limited attachment points on my property. I did not expect this antenna to work so well. I have tried other antennas in the past for the low bands and although this antenna is the shortest I have used on the low bands, it has been my most successful antenna I have ever used on those bands.
There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. Skip to main content. Filter 2. This is "The Globestar". These antennas are also known as Random Wire.
C-Poles for different frequencies on one pole must be fed with separate feedlines over separate current baluns. In a first attempt I fed the H-pole in the center with a ladder line. The C-Pole is a resonant antenna, whereas the H-Pole is non resonant and must be matched with a tuner. Construction and materials used for the H-Pole are similar to the C-Pole. I use non conductive glass fibre fishing rods, beware of conductive carbon fibre!
