WA3WSJ Black Widow Vertical Antenna
KL0WN using his BW on the beach Kodiak Island, Alaska
Welcome to my Black Widow Vertical Antenna Page. Because I received numerous requests for more information about this wonderful antenna, I started this page.
The BW Antenna is a proven winner for portable operation on 20m, 30m and 40m with no tuner. If you have an Icom 703, use it with the tuner for the 17M WARC band! The entire antenna including the pole weighs-in at less than 2.5 pounds. If you don't use the pole, it only weighs-in around one pound or less!
As seen in the picture to the left, I made a nice guy kit to support the 20' foot pole. This antenna has survived a Nor'Easter in 70mph winds!
I do not sell any products. This page is for all who want to " roll-your-own BW."
