Basic Buddipoles

Buddipole Sunset

These are the basic dipole designs from the Buddipole manual.  Basic designs do not include the TSRB.  If having problems try removing it even though the setting of 1:1 should effectively remove it.

 

Basic assembly is Versatee, then a 22" arm, coil, and a standard whip on each side.  See image below.

 

When counting taps on the coils always start counting from the whip/female end screw.

 

Do not leave unneeded coil clips on the coils.
