Why Aerial-51?

.... DJ0IP headed for Field Day on the Isle of Mann ....

.

   BECAUSE:E:

 

"PORTABLE ANTENNAS

SHOULD WORK

JUST AS WELL

AS BASE ANTENNAS"

 

 

 

 

.

 

Aerial-51 was created for the following reasons:

  • A belief that with antennas, "HEIGHT IS MIGHT"
  • Keeping an antenna light enables erecting it much higher
  • Modern lightweight materials are available for building  antennas:
    • Very tall, lightweight telescoping fiberglass poles
    • Thin, CopperWeld wire (lightweight but very strong)
    • Strong lightweight rope (Kevlar, Dyneema, PVDF, etc.)
    • Lightweight insulators (Polyethelin, Plexiglas, FR4, etc.)

but . . . 

  • Currently most companies designing and building wire antennas are still building them just like they built them in the 1950's:

HEAVY AS A TANK!

  • Unfortunately most text books are still teaching the same consturction technique as used in the 1950's.
  • Amateur radio operators, unfamiliar with the construction techniques of these new materials, continue to home brew antennas as if they were preparing for word World War II.
  • Then in portable operations, they often erect these heavy monsters just 15 to 20 feet high and wonder why their signal is so poor.  (duh)

 

Aerial-51 demonstrates

a modern, lightweight approach 

to antenna construction.

 

 

Why "Outdair Sumwear" ?

I live on a mountain side in  central Germany in the region of Main-Spessart.

I have an antenna test field located behind my house, farther up the mountain, well hidden by trees.

When visitors ask me where my antennas are, I point up the mountain and say "Outdair Sumwear".   In the meantime that's the name I have given my antenna test field.  :-)

 

All Aerial-51 antennas come from Outdair Sumwear.
