SPIDERBEAM CONSTRUCTION TIPS

 

Building a Spiderbeam is really QUITE EASY, but there is a lot of repetitive work.  As a result, it usually takes you about 20 to 25 hours to build the beam.  The Portable version takes a little longer because you have to glue the Velcro strips onto the fiberglass spreaders.

 

The two steps which require a little bit caution and skill are:

  1. building the driven elements and feedlines
  2. building the balun.

 

Here are more detailed instructions for doing both:
