KY6R Optimized 40M Loop – Next Step

The feed line will run along the bottom 1 x 2’s and to the 75 / 50 ohm transformer. I will use a plastic electrical box to protect the transformer and resistor from the rain – and use 4 bolts to hold the ladder line that comes down from the apex and then the bottom ladder line that runs along the bottom elements.

The connections for the ladder line will be right at the end of each bottom board.

For “quick release”, I will need two 10′ RG6 lines and a couple of barrel connectors. Which reminds me – I should order those today. I have a 3 day weekend coming up – and will be home Friday too – so I expect that this antenna will be online this coming weekend.
