Re: Helix for AO-51

Since everyone is having so much fun, I have resurrected my Drake and a BBQ
dish...just to see if I want to spend some time making a REAL antenna...was
there ever a consensus for the best/easiest screening for the BBQ dish?

I was just going to use HD Aluminum (Aluminium or Al for those guys outside
the States ;-) Foil and Hot Glue or spray glue to nail it down...

Thanks in advance!

BTW MY IF is 120 mhz with the coils removed - works well with my PCR-1000
