The Wonderful Beverage Antenna



The Transformer of the Beverage

Installation of the Beverage Antenna: So, after night supper, it was 01.00 a.m., at dim light of polar night UA3ZNW, UA1NEQ and UV3DUF begun to install the Beverage. We put near 200 meters of wire in straight line to South- West. The wire was sitting at 0.7- 1.5 meters above the ground. Bushes, small trees and dry sticks were supported the wire.

At the feeding end we did grounding to an old steels mast, which ten years ago was carried antennas for the Fire Service but for now the mast was unused by the service. At the load end we installed artificial ground, 6- lambda/4 counterpoises for 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 and 80 meters. At the bands, as well as at 160 meters, the Beverage had SWR better the 1.5:1.
