Diamond CP6 or not? – Transmission1

Of course, others may disagree but I am coming to the end of a roll of D10 surplus cable that has been made into just about every antenna type I could fit in vp6 garden and that’s what worked for me, although my next attempt when the weather perks up is going to be a sterba curtain.

It easily fit into my small 20 x 30 feet garden. Ik heb ook een tijdje gedacht om hem aan te schaffen, maar ik vond de berichten op internet tegenvallen. SSB requires a tuner.

The CP-6S covers the lower end of 80m. Jeez, sounds like they’re made from junk. I replaced the wire, 24mts of it with a slightly heavier gauge wire and removed the plastic pole holders and replaced them with aluminium pole holders wrapped in insulating tape and a double u bolt on each holder, so it’s been repaired and it work’s fine now and resonant on 15m band I’ve currently got djamond old school Shakespeare Army Big Stick up just now for 11 meters and it works quite well.

Nadeel daarvan is dat het de 5m bouwvergunning vrij monteren weer niet kan.


I would recommend the CP-6 and would buy it again if I ever needed a replacement. After getting my licence in August, I commissioned the antenna and worked satisfactory on 5 band no tx on 6m After months noticed a change in VSWR on most bands above 10m, then 10m when bad. I purchased a CP6 in July of These breaks were basically down to bad design and construction of the trap.

Only 2 rivits are used to secure the trap insulatated ddiamond to the aluminium sections. I have never had any problem with the construction of the antenna or the traps.
