Here is my Version II antenna with the 75 meter coil. The capacity cage is flat copper with a heat shrink covering. The 75 meter coil is 8 gauge copper, 12 inches in diameter, with 10 turns over 4.5 inches.
This was taken after I straightened the cage a bit. It features the 40 meter coil. 4 3/4 turns of #8 copper with a 12 inch diameter.
The station consists of a removable Yaesu 5 watt radio along with the, also removable, control pod; a 3KW dual needle meter joined to a power monitor & control panel.
The 1.5 KW is provided by the trunk-located desktop amplifier constructed by W6PQL. The amplifier is powered from 4 12-volt batteries in series which are charged from a 12 volt to 55 volt custom inverter.
