  • F-LFST2

    Hi all,

    Here a picture of my humble antenna setup for T-LFST2.
    Left my Diamond X50 V/UHF antenna for Amateur Radio and right the 1090MHz antenna. It is the bulgarian colinear that can be bought on ebay.

    Nice setup! The Diamond for Tx/Rx or only Rx?

        Nice!

        Did you fabricate the T mount yourself ?

          It depends what you mean by fabricate myself I bought the bits and pieces at various places and put them together.
          The vertical pole is a 50mm pole meant for satellite dish. It is actually 4m long and made of 4 galvanized tubes sticked together. and only about 2,5m are out of the roof allowing the base of the antennas to be approx 1,20m above the roof tip.

          The horizontal part is made of aluminum and is very light. I bought this a few years ago in Germany at a Hamradio fest.

            That sounds self fabricated to me :-)
            I'm looking to make something just like it as I need to install more antennas on my tower.

                Also been wondering about that T-mount... been racking my brain on how to modify what is available over here for make such a thing.

                  Something like this would hold two tubes at right angles, especially if two of the toothed sections were put at 90 degrees back to back

                  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370759468700

                  Then check the antennas you are using - the brackets may work equally well to fix to horizontal or vertical tubes (certainly true of the Bulgarian collinear)

                    Or you can use a similar item than I used http://www.antennenland.net/Doppel-M...mtlaenge-125-m

                    I have no idea how those things are called in english... :/
