By popular demand I have designed a linked dipole hardware kit so that you can make your own two or three band linked dipole. We put all those hard-to-find parts together in one convenient package. Not sure what a linked dipole is? Click here.
Basic tools plus antenna wire, co-axial cable (RG58, RG174 or similar) and of course plenty of time. We would estimate it will take about 3 to 4 hours to make up a three-band linked dipole.

Well constructed kit, everything works perfectly. For my point of view, you should offer 50m of the yellow wire and perhaps some koax cable together with the kit.

I bought 3 of these kits together with the lightweight wire and 7m Sotapoles for use on our annual IOTA trip. 3 sets of Dipoles made up and tuned prior to departure. Team was impressed with the quality of the components and how quickly the antenna system could be deployed. In excess of 5000 qso's on these antennas in 4 days of IOTA operation proved their worth. Looking forward to using them again on the next trip.

I bought this kit after borrowing a friend's 20-30-40 linked sotabeams dipole and liked it so much, decided to build my own for 10-15-40m (As I can only use those bands as an F-Call in Australia). Simple to use and setup, after initial tuning, didn't even need an ATU. Can even leave it on 40m and let the ATU tune to 10 and 15m :)

While testing my newly made dipole, my antenna support crashed on my sidewalk causing the toroid to shatter. I contacted Richard so that I could source a replacement here in the U.S , but he shipped a replacement to me instead.
Thanks for the excellent customer support.

Just add wire!

Very helpful in constructing antenna.

I have bought several sets and built linked dipoles for portable use, and these worked perfectly.

I have made a couple of linked dipoles with this kit.
Hardly worth making bits and pieces yourself at this price.

Good bag of useful bits - with a little modification have built a 20m quad loop to support from a 10m pole!

After searching for materials to make a lightweight centre-piece for a dipole for SOTA use, I decided to take the easy option and splash out on the purchase of one of Richard's Linked Dipole Hardware Kits. Logging on to his site I saw they were on special offer, so I bought three! I was making a monoband dipole so I didn't need the link insulators or croc clips, but no doubt at some stage this antenna will become a linked dipole, so they are in my SOTA box waiting for that day. The individual parts are good quality and well designed. I opted to use the centre-piece upside down as I hang my dipoles on a length of nylon cord from the mast using one of Richard's top insulators at the upper end. So, no cutting, no drilling, no filing, no furrowed brow, ..... and to cap it all, they are manufactured in my favourite colour!
