Homemade Buddipole/Buddi-Stick
« on: February 16, 2012, 01:10:08 PM »
THANKS to idial1911 for making this a "sticky".  Also, we are going to place all the different Buddipole/Buddi-stick documents here.  Thanks, Greg

All -- I'm a big fan of the Buddipole, and operating in portable modes (normally at a camground).  While I have the commerically made Buddipole, I've also made several, using these plans, and have also made th Buddi-Stick (vertical dipole), but have not used it yet.  This is my first post on the Homebade Buddipole.  This is the same plan that Bud (W3FF) has on this website, with some construction notes I've added.

If you are looking for a portable set-up, give this a try.  Good Luck, Greg, K9TLA

You have to have microsoft word installed.

If you don't have it.. go download open office. it's free and can decode office documents.
