Antennas at VA2UP
Year 2005 - Beamer TB-050
VA2UP's triple feed, triple monobander full size bent elements. Small footprint for 10, 15 and 20M . This antenna gave me a lot of joy and never failed despite ice loads and wind storms.
Year 2007 - MX-20 (moxon 20M).
I had a lot of fun building the MX series. Quite sturdy and they always worked great. Here's one on the test tower at home.
Year 2007 - MX-15
I made this one to have a fixed antenna south-west on 15M at all times.
2007 - VA2UP Hexbeam
Year 2009 - 3 element 20M yagi and Cushcraft D40, these were both very good antennas for me.
Year 2010 - Steppir 2 element. Decided to make things easier and got 2 Steppir antennas to reduce interaction. Painted both grey, light blue and white for more discrete look in urban environment.
Year 2011 - Top loaded 1/4 wave 80M vertical. Not the best but better than nothing.
Year 2005 - Beamer TB-570
This was the Beamer for 15, 17 and 20M work.
Year 2007 - MX-20 and 15M yagi
MX-20 at the station and below an ultra light fiberglass tubing 3 element 15M yagi.
Year 2007 - MX-10
And this one to EU in case 10M would actually open in VE2 land..
Year 2007 - Crossed 40M Vees
These are 2 perpendicular Vees NE-SW and NW-SE for 40M. They worked good, mounted on a telescopic fiberglass mast.
Year 2009 - Looking east to downtown Montreal.
Year 2010 - Steppir DB-18. It's quite heavy and a good performer. For 40M work I would really need to put this up another 10 to 20 feet but hey, that's all I can do from here.
Year 2011 - So this is what it looks like from the main street of Lasalle. That building is 40 ft tall and the DB-18 is up anther 26 feet. You can also see the heavily modified top loaded 80M vertical (used to be an HF2V poor thing...)
