20m-new

20 Metres 14.00 to 14.350 

 

17m-new

17 Metres 18.068 to 18.168

 

15m-new

15 Metres 21.00 to 21.450

10 Metres 28.000 to 29.700

 

6m-new

6 Metres 50.000 to 52.000

 

I have kept the resonant frequency slightly high to compensate for the shift in frequency caused by rain fall. This also helps keep the SWR low well into the CW and Data portion of the bands.
