|My first antenna - details|
The weft wire, unravelled from a length of steel mosquito mesh, was used as the conductor! The wire was quite tough for its small gauge which rendered it rather light and minimised sag.Bakelite pieces served as the insulators.
This antenna did a great job for the series of simple radios I built those days.
I now wonder how it would have performed as a long wire antenna for the HF rigs I built in later years.
