Hi,

Antenna matching or making a working antenna for AM broadcast is the most difficult part of setting up an AM station.
There was this antenna; that I don’t say is the best, but rather that would make you get on the air quick with least technical effort. It mounts on a steel TV mast just like any TV antenna and that’s all you need to get on the air besides assembling the antenna itself.
No radials, RF ground, or any tuner, just a few feet of clearance around it.
But good things always DON’T last, and its price has skyrocketed making it unreachable to most pirates that need price conscious equipment as well as being technically friendly.
If you still can afford it, then good for you, but for me, I’ll just wait for my break to come either by finally making an antenna that won’t blow out the final, or for some supplier to start making commercial AM antennas at affordable prices.

Check it out at:

Anyone has an idea for Antennas?

Post O.K. Great ! Reply with quote
Hi Marko,

Great, I hear that you have fixed all the problems in the max I.
It will need some little effort, but I grew so lazy and dependant on commercially available equipment when building my FM station that I missed half the fun and the little challenge that comes with it !
Thank you for the antenna links.
