The Arctic King is finally built.
The project has taken more or less two years, it has consumed an incredible amount of heavy duty hardware and an enormous amount of hard work.
I enjoyed some assistance from my neighbors Finnbjörn and his brother Jón from Litlaeyri.
The antenna is designed by Villi, TF3DX and it will eventually work on both 160 and 80 meters and it will be possible to switch between vertical and dipole modes, which will give a choice of low and high angles of radiation.
Testing of the antenna will now begin, I have no doubts that the antenna will give me a strong signal on Top Band.
The efficiency of the antenna is in the vicinity of 75%, with 1.5 ohms in ground losses, this will later be confirmed when final measurements have been carried out.
Note: Measurements have been made which confirmed this.
Due to the Salt Water propagation path for more than 180° and the closeness of the sea, the radiation angle is extremely low, this should help with very long distance contacts.
