Installation Suggestions:

Feed the coax out a window and then...

  • Run the antenna along the gutter for great SWL properties
  • Start at the gutter and run to the ground as a sloper dipole antenna
  • Start at one end of the gutter and finish at the other end, with the middle of the antenna forming a "V" Dipole Antenna. (45o angles)
  • Start in the middle and allow the ends of the antenna to head towards ground in an inverted V dipole antenna format (45o angles)
  • Tree to tree or fence post to fence post. The higher above ground the better!


No window nearby?

Drill a Hole through the Ceiling of the radio Shack and put the Workman BS-1 Dipole Antenna In the attic. Use any of the above installs that meet your environment and individual band needs.

Apartment / Townhouse / HMO Dwellers:

Hang the Workman BS-1 Dipole Antenna at the very top corner of a bedroom and run the antenna long the lengths of the two nearest walls, with the excess left to drop to the floor. The antenna should resemble a sideways L (90o angles) Be sure to avoid electrical ceiling lights!

The Workman BS-1 Dipole Antenna is Compact, Complete, and ready to Install !
