  1. Loop antennas are VERY good and at 10/11 meters it's easy due to the small size. Here is an article form a local club member who made his a rectangle shape. This way it conforms to exactly 50 ohms (no balun needed) and with an easy feed point for vertical polarization. The 17 meter part can be a bonus or just eliminate that section if you want to make it a single band antenna. 17loop.pdf
  2. Am I blind or do we not have a 'Vintage Radio' section on the forum?

      Huh, I will look, may need to add one, thought we did

  3. All About Antennas

    A helpful article to give you a basic understanding of antennas. It may even resolve some myths you have been believing in. For some reason the CB frequencies are full of folks preaching antenna myths. antennabook.pdf
  4. Sirio 'New' Tornado

    Best omni base antenna I have run across is the Tornado, a true 5/8 wave physically. Other Sirio antennas are good too but beware of those base antennas that use a copper wire coil in the base (ex. Gain Master/Series 2000/827); they do not handle high power and yield less bandwidth. The catalog here is a 2006 edition but little has changed and this one is very informative. tornado_manual.pdf sirio_cb_catalog2006.pdf
