Using the W7FG Open Wire Fed True Ladder Line Dipole Is Easy!
Why use an open-wire fed dipole? Quite simply, they are efficient, broadband, easily tuned with a balanced input tuner, nearly unaffected by rain, easy to erect, stay up, and remain "trouble free" for years.
My W7FG True Ladder Line Dipole has been up for 12 wicked Vermont winters without a single problem. I do replace the dacron line every few years as "insurance".
When you put up your first Doublet (that's what this dipole is called), you'll say what every one of us said when we first turned on our rig; "Why the heck didn't I do this 20 years ago?"
You'll see a reduction in noise, increased receive sensitivity, ease of tuning and better signal reports as more power is radiated. You will love it from that first moment!
