How long is a 10m dipole antenna?

The Wire Size can range from 16 AWG to 12 AWG. The larger the wire, the wider the bandwidth. The antenna is designed to be fed with 50 or 75 Ohm Coax Cable of most any length with a Balun. Place a 1:1 Balun on the Antenna end of the Feedline….Dipole Antenna Calculator.

20 Meters

28.500 16.42 8.21
29.000 16.14 8.07

How long should a 10 meter antenna be?

A typical full length 1/4 wave antenna for 10 meters is something on the order of 100 inches, give or take a few. A dirt common 102″ whip should work okay, just need to trim it a little. As for gain, forget it. For there to be gain the length of a single antenna doubles.

How high is a 10 meter dipole?

A 10 meter dipole would be around 16 ft. plus or minus. Why would you want to shorten what is already a short antenna? A helically wound antenna is certainly possible, but most designs I’ve seen are for short verticals.

What antenna is best for 10 meters?

The Antron A-99 antenna is a 17 foot tall antenna as designed and the Imax 2000 is 24 feet tall when it comes from the factory. Either of these antenna can be readily used on 10 meters with just a bit of simple tuning and you will be very pleased at their performance. They get great reviews and are widely used.

Approximate Lengths for HF Ham Band Dipole Antennas
Band (MHz) Length (Feet) Length (metres)
14.00 (20 metres) 34.3 10.6
18.068 26.6 8.2
21.00 (15 metres) 22.8 7.04

Is a full wavelength antenna better?

It’s length (half of the wavelength) gives you the better performance than other lengths….. It may be gain, efficiency, directivity, return loss, etc….. I think the gain of the half wave dipole is higher than the full wave length antenna.

Approximate Lengths for HF Ham Band Dipole Antennas
Band (MHz) Length (Feet) Length (metres)

14.00 (20 metres) 34.3 10.6

How long is a 80 meter dipole antenna?

Since an 80 meter dipole is approximately 130 feet long, and a 160 meter dipole is approximately 250 feet long, this space reduction can be critical in getting the antenna to fit into our typical backyards.

How high does a 20 meter dipole need to be?

42 feet
20 Meter Dipole at 42 feet.

Can you use a CB antenna for 10 meters?

The 10 Meter Band consists of frequencies stretching from 28.000 to 29.700 MHz and the 11 Meter Band (CB) is 26.965 to 27.405 MHz. This means that you can still use a standard CB antenna- just be sure to get an antenna that has a power rating that will handle the power output of your 10 meter radio.

What should I look for in a CB antenna?

The best CB base antennas are much taller fiberglass or aluminum antennas (12-18 feet), and they are used for base stations in fixed locations rather than mobile CB operations. They need to be mounted very high, but can handle high power.
