Re: Still holding its own - HF Radio

Hello Simon:
The Kiss-SSB method used is as simple a method as possible. One attaches the lead end of the 10 foot long 1/2 inch diameter tubing to the antenna tuner then strings the tubing out wherever it will fit. See for their counterpoise. I was just reinforcing what Bill btrayfors said in his treatise above.
Putting all that 3 inch wide copper in is not very easy and nearly impossible in some boats whereas the Kiss-SSB counterpoise couldn't be simpler and is effective. The method(tuned radials) is eluded to in the ICOM manual as well. Cheers Wayne
