50′ coax with BNC blogProduct comments ed/wq2u / October 2, 2021
Looks great. I would be interested in one. You may even consider modifying to hold 65’ of wire and integrate an 49:1 unun in the unit so you can have a readily deployed EFHW antenna. I’ve been working on using a kite string winder but your reel looks much more robust.
Looks good especially when you are using RG316.
I wonder how much 18-ga wire one could hold? I use a 9:1, and I’d love to have a way to keep my antenna wire tidy. 🙂
What is the inside measurement, between the flanges/outer rims? I’m wondering if you could wind up 20-25 ft of 450 ohm ladder line, which is ~1 inch wide.
What is the reel made of? That is to say is it anodized aluminum or some other metal? Thank you.
It’s a beauty.
