It can be overwhelming trying to decide what to get started with. I could be out there hours trying to tune it.

Promoting friendship within the international Amateur Radio community through the cooperative exchange of fiele and experiences of portable operations in the field. The vertical configurations are the easiest for me to set up and definitely the easiest to tune; give them a try! I know I did. There is not much attention given to using it with the shockcord mast.

Below 20m, it requires a coil. I know I did. Keep up the reports and videos, i love it 73 s. The result was a small crack on one of the bolt holes in the VersaTee.

Buddipope find that it takes too much time and still does not tune. Could you tell me where you found this little gem? Generally, I set up my Buddipole near saltwater and only use it as a vertical and I work the world with excellent results.


Getting Started With Your Buddipole

When I first started using my Buddipole I did not have an antenna analyser and I quickly regretted this. It is buddiple easy to read, however the plots are also pretty small as is the information with them. I get a good swr on the general class end of 40 meters with no TRSB.

NVIS works great on 40M. I am usually up and running within a few minutes with the aid of my analyzer and I could not do without it in the fielf. I bought the extra long whips to be able to work 40 meters better and better is what it does at that lower freq. Yes, a toroid should do the trick for you.

Buxdipole even something in the close proximity to the antenna? I get different opinions.

I would have thought that whether or not you need an ATU in addition would depend on the antennas you build and what their resulting impedance is. Or even something in the close proximity to the antenna? As such, it’s kind of trial and error–especially until you really learn how to use the antenna and understand budvipole.

Contact the site with comments or questions. It makes things much easier to check that my setups are tuned properly for best performance. Using my MFJc analyzer I found it even more frustrating to try to tune because as I moved closer to the antenna the swr would fiels change. I hope you find using your Buddipole as rewarding as I have done. It should be noted that if you are putting extra lengths in-line, I would suggest putting the coil toward the middle of the arm.


I have similar interests. Jonathan, I read the book a few years ago. It is understandable by both new and experienced hams.

As with the antenna–experiment and see what works! The only thing I would say is go ahead and get the longer whips…they make tuning the Buddipole so much easier in the horizontal dipole config. I am a fairly cautious person by nature and have a tendency to procrastinate so I spent lots of time reading and watching videos before setting up my Buddipole for the first time. Thanks for sharing this information on the use of the Buddipole antenna. I use a Buddipole a lot but mainly build my own bases for Buddipole parts from Ham Universe and the Ham sites.

This is where the traditional ham creativity comes in. So I just bought a new one this week and with the standard whips and the short 9 foot pole on the tripod i got it running on 20 meters in less than 10 minutes just by following the table for the coil clips and whip lengths that came with it.

Trust me when I say that an antenna analyzer is a must!
