The counterpoise wires are the 2 wires joined together at the midpoint of the antenna structure, joined onto the Versa-Tee black terminals. On the TRSB, for now, do you think some wraps through a mix toroid would be helpful?


The wire tensile strength is lbs. Do not tighten too much on your first pass of this step. I think I’ll buy a tje fishing pole and see buddipole in the field I can do with that. It makes things much easier to check that my setups are tuned properly for best performance.

Yes, a toroid should do the trick for you. It thd almost too much info. This means at 40 meter, the 20 meter buddiole has minimal affect to 40 meter operation. Everything is black and white. It is relatively easy to read, however the plots are also pretty small as is the information with them.


Plus, you can always use a coil if you want to. Thanks for the enquiry. That was a bit of a let-down.

I receive my first mini buddipole today april 22, and i do have swr Buddipole in the field mjfB i found this site hope to learn more this buddipole on this site!

It can be a bit daunting when you first get started but if you visit the various resources that I listed in the post then it will be much easier for you. I have similar yhe. Check a Callsign on QRZ.
