I am interested in putting up a folded dipole on my mast, I am running simplex. I browsed my HAM shop and found that they are extremely expensive. I would appreciate help with some questions...
1). What is their advantage/disadvantage?
2). Are there any construction plans with formulas to apply to different frequencies? I am feeding my current vertical antenna with LMR-600 50ohm coax.
3). I am picking up intermod with my Cushcraft Ringo Ranger 2 and IC-2200H. What do you recommend? I need to be able to tune it.
