KD9PQW Indiana works East Africa, Europe, Alaska & S. America from his HOA Flagpole Antenna

KD9PQW in an Indiana HOA works the world with his 20' Greyline Flagpole Antenna.

Greg's XYL let's him install the Greyline Flagpole Antenna in the garden. That's a happy wife!

Ham Radio is fun again, right out of the box!

Look at this map! He's heard in East Africa to Alaska, Europe and South America too! Wow, Greg.

"Completed my antenna installation and so far I am happy with the contacts I am making.  I have the 20' antenna with the RT-600 tuner and yes I made sure the hot center conductor is feeding the top section. Right now I am using FT-8 but will try others later. I am mostly working 20, 30 and 40 Meters right now.

SWR results.

80 M         1.55
40 M          1.08
30 M          1.28
20 M          1.5
17 M          1.49
15 M          1.29
12 M          1.9
10 M          2.4
6 M            2.6
Please let me know what you think and if there are any tweaks to be made. I am using an Icom IC-7300 going thru an MFJ-849 wattmeter.

Speaking of looking great, that garden installed Greyline Flagpole and the results you've shared are first-class. Congrats to you sir!


Greg's XYL let's him install the Greyline Flagpole Antenna in the garden. That's a happy wife. We'd bet your other half would rather you had a DX Flagpole too. Be like Greg. 

  • "Real DX 160-6M at my HOA"
  • "4 Band DXCC in 3-months at my HOA."
  • "So pretty my XYL approves!"
  • "If I can hear it, I can work it."

Let's get you and your friends back on the air. Ham Radio is fun again! Pass it on...
