Will give you a few impressions of the portable actions done during the last years. It`s a pity, living so close to the Alps and have nearly no chance to do more outdoor activities... but time will change, children will grow up and the DX will become better and better in next sun-spot max.,

During Dayton Hamvention 2006 I met a new friend, my “Buddipole”. I bought one of the “deluxe pachage” for all 40-6m portable use.

I had the chance to buy the last package from their stock at Dayton 2006-

Thank you Budd, W3FF and Chris, W6HFP

The Installation

 

This weekend I spend some time to build up my Buddipole for the first time.

 

Read the manual first, use an SWR  analyser like the MFJ 259 for the first time.

 

I followed the instructions, installed the clips and tested the different SWR under different constructions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over all:

one of the best made toy I ever bought, the quality of all parts is great, easy to handl, nothing looks or feel cheap, everything high quality parts and products

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the first horizontal test... I installed the additional parts and tried the V-version. Different angle and with the first call an QSO cross Europe on 20m

See the SWR I got at the initial installation... no more comments on that

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the FT 897 (without any tuner) for SWR display and Power display.... also... no more comment on that story.... perfect!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can recommend the Buddipole for the quality and the easy-installation-with-low-SWR from now on. For the real on-air use I will try it during our summer vacation to EA6 island

 

For further questions I suggest you contact the Budd or Chris at the Buddipole factory:

During the summer 2007 vacation I used the Buddipole first time with the new, long telescopic whips... much better than before...spec. on 40m
