The KA8DDQ Jim Harvey Antenna Stretcher

Part Two

 The purpose of the antenna stretcher or extender is to permit efficient operation below 3 MHz for operation on mars and perhaps the 160 meter amateur band.  This is a different coil loading coil form and design than part one.

Compleeted coil on the Poweraide bottle  24 turns of #14 electrical wire, insulation still on wire.  Small hole in the bottle  for the wire to go inside and hold in place.

Bottle label area is where the wire is wound.

 

The area between the black tape is where the wire is wound. You can see the ribbed area which is fairly ridged.
