New – Bigwheel antenna for 2m

By | April 22, 2018

Yesterday I picked up a secondhand Wimo Bigwheel antenna for 2m.
This antenna has somewhat more gain then my Homebrew SQualo.

I have completely disassembled the antenna, and cleaned and rinsed all parts and elements.

Also I had to create a new mounting bracket, as the original one was missing.

Same as the SQualo antenna, it is easy to mount it on top of my HF Wire dipole mast.

 

Re-assembled the antenna and mounted on the mast.
No tuning required, SWR is as flat as can be over the entire 2m band.
Let’s do some FT8 work 🙂
