The antenna ground system consists of sev en radials of aluminum stranded wire buried about 6 inches beneath the earths surface. A sod edger shovel can be used to slice a slot in the ground. The aluminum wire should then be laid in the slot and the earth tamped shut. The result will be no scars to your lawn from the installation. Each of the aluminum ground radials should be clamped to an aluminum pipe driven 3 feet into the ground at a distance of 6 inches from the base of the antenna. The use of an aluminum strap prevents problems from dissimilar metals when clamping the radials. No spray coat or preserv ative was used on this ground radial connection in my installation, but an application of liquid rubber over the entire joint would probably make a more workmanship job.
1 2 feel up each 4x4 to hold the guy ropes. With this system, the guy ropes don't get in the way when you mow the lawn. More importantly, since the guy ropes are the only thing keeping the antenna up, they are much better protected from accidental damage. I found bite marks recently in the coax that runs to one of my antennas. Unbelievably, the bite penetrated all the way through to the inner conductor of the 9913 large size) coax. So consider the critter factor when deciding how to locate the guy ropes.
Hiiro are ground radial systems for getting improved performance from Jong-wire, vertical and other HAM and SWl r antennas which are operated against ground. These radial system* will also improve the efficiency of tigrounded antennas such as doublets, zepps and directive arrays reducing Lhe losses resulting from ground imperfections. Excellent as permanent or temporary ( Field Day ) Installations. Complete, ready to roll out radial systems In two sizes to satisfy most HAM and f'SW requirements. Uses No, 14 gauge solid copper radial wires electrically and mechanically bonded to central hub. Drive pegs are provided for securing radial wire ends. .7ust locate center hub where you want it, roll out the radiate and you're in business, Radials can be easily burled to preserve the beauty of your front or back yard lawn.

After some jockeying to line it up with the driveway, the truck was backed into the yard. Five minutes later someone remembered to open the gate, This was a silly tiling to think of now, because the gate had been sort of opened by the truck. Anyhow, we backed the whole shebang into the yard, and unceremoniously slid the tower, beam and all into the nearest rosebush. After everything was unloaded, the truck was driven out of the yard and over the gate, leaving some nice big ruts in the lawn for the kids to play in.
I have found that a broken white plastic lawn chair can be cut up to make very good antenna insulators. Cut rectangles 1.5 inches b inches and drill holes as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. t use a covered wire about 16 gauge, which helps keep down snow static. Siring the half-wave section in one hole, over and through the second hole, and down through the third hole Fig, I. the whole half-square antenna complete with insulators made from broken lawn chairs.

Satellite * is a ,,Sp3ce-lor-HeaUh project instituted by Nobet Laureate Or. Bernard Lawn of the Harvard University School of Public Health. The project invited AMSAT to participate in a meeting near Geneva 19-21 March to discuss Ihe possible applications of the AMSAT-deveioped space systems and earth terminals to support communications between medicalpersonneii in remote areas AMSAT president Vern Hip1 Riportelia WA2LQG and engineering vice-president Jan Kmg W3GEY travelled to Annecy. France, just south of Geneva, to attend the meeting
We will arrive in Stuttgart on the second and be driven to Solitude Castle where all of the new Porsches ordered by the club members will be spread out on the huge lawn. Among them will be my old 1958 Porsche Speedster which I shipped over in January to have reconditioned.
Bertram Green W2LPC writes in to inquire about an old friend 9913 coaxial cable. He plans to run a hundred feet oi it through some PVC tubing under his lawn to his antennas. Probtem isT the PVC has a tendency to col The logical answer is to simply not use 9913 Select, instead an appropriate non-contammating RG 8 cable, such as RG-213. It has higher losses than 9913, but it resists water Certain types of hard-iine are also suitable for direct burial, and this may in fact be the best choice- since The cable needs to De strong and won't be flexed. Prodelin SpirO*Line and Andrew Heliax are excellent choices. The higher cost of the cabte is offset by knowing you won't need to dig up the lawn in six months to replace itt
Lots of update* are here for the taking. These computer-crafted radio modes seem to sprout new modes and updates for earlier programs like weeds in the spring lawn. I was going to say older programs instead of earlier* .And thai could have been politically correct in computer terms, hut most of the soundcard software has been around less than two years.
Antennas (right) comes in five different versions for 40T 30, 20, 15 and 10 meters. These antennas are only nine feet high (the 10 meter model is seven feet) and are designed to sit on a patio, lawn or balcony. They can be set up or taken down in just a couple of minutes, and they are unobtrusive enough for antenna-restricted locations.
You can use a variety of ground anchors for the guy ropes. I took a different approach as 1 didn't want to give up any lawn space to the guy ropes angling down from the antenna. Instead of ground anchors, I placed four 10-foot treated 4x4s in the ground, 25 feet from the base of the antenna, spaced 90 degrees apart, The 4x4s were buried four feet deep and anchored with one bag of ready-mix concrete each. Screw eyes were placed about 5-
