Update: 02. October 2022:
Please read the updated Antenna Page first, to get a basic understanding of EFHW and possible Setups.
The U01 Antenna was built and tested also with the smaller hasp PCB, which can be seen in the Video below, so there you have another Option.
All DL2MAN Antenna PCB´s provide Option for SMA and BNC Connector !
I´ve created an updated overview Document, taking all the options into consideration:
Updated Version !!!! 27. August 2022:
This PCB is designed for FT140-43 core with 2 in 14 turns and should be able to easily handle 100W. Use 500V silver Mica Capacitor 100p. PCB has footprints for BNC and SMA Connector. The spool was designed a little bit bigger, so it would also carry the amount of wire, when using DX Wire FL ! I personally use UL (Ultralight) by DX-Wire.
This updated PCB just replaces the broadband transformer PCB. Wire lenth etc all stays the same.
End of Update
I´ve used the same wire lengths as in Tom´s original article (including the loops to connect the segments together,) but I build my own specimen around a FT82-43 core transformer with QRP in mind.
Meanwhile, I´ve created several Options (together with DJ5RE) to build it with FT114-43 or FT140-43. See Updates at the Beginnning of this Page.
See Antenna Main page for a table of what core-size to chose depending on the TX Power and what winding pattern to chose depending on the core size.
This is the concept drawing:
Antenna wire was Ultralight from DX-wire
Rope was Polyester rope 2mm by DX-Wire
Connectors were 2mm RC connectors
Broadband transformer was wound on FT82-43 (other Options available)
Transformer was wound with 0,63mm copper enamelled wire (use 1mm for FT140-43)
This is one set of the required print files (printed in PETG at 0,15mm layer height, 3 shells, 30% infill)
Remark: The following PCB Files are not neccessary, when you use the U01 Spindle PCB (from top of this Page)!
You can use DG1JAN´s PCBs to built the 1:49 broadband Transformer:
Update 09.Sept 2022:
Jan has updated his PCB and has now also the Gerbers on his GitHub. To be sure to have the latest Revision, please download the Files from his Github.
And these are the Gerber files for my own PCB:
