|I plan to build this Optimized G5RV (with the top section 90.3 ft long) but my question is about the 450 ohm ladder line feeder length.
The antenna calls for 40 ft feeder ladder line, but if I am not going to use the antenna for 80 or 160 meters, can this 40 ft be shortened to 20 feet? and still be effective(ie: resonant) on 40 through 6 meters?
|QRP logging||W4RQ||on 23/4/12|
|I like to run QRP, but do not want to keep a seperate log, but should I be keeping 2 logs?
I don't send CQ de W4RQ/QRP because I want to log and receive all QSL's addressed for W4RQ
Is this acceptable general practice?
