Antennas

For over 25 years a Fritzel FB23-beam has been in use, which is also shown on one of my QSL cards.

In May 2021 the FB23 was replaced by an Ultrabeam UB20-mx. This type of antenna forms a 2-element moxon yagi on 20m and 17m, and a 3-element full-size yagi on the upper bands (15m to 6m). The length of the elements can be changed by motors that push copper strips through fiberglass tubes. This achieves a good SWR on all bands.

The antenna system also includes a matched inverted vee for the bands from 160m to 30m and a yagi for VHF and UHF.

The Ultrabeam and the VHF / UHF-yagi can be rotated.
