    Default Getting the feeder coax into the house

    Hi,
    Can anyone suggest the best way to get the coax from my dipole into the house without leaving any visible holes in walls/window frames etc? I could probably feed it through the corner of a window and still just about shut the window but I guess it's not too good for the coax it to be squeezed quite that much!

    there are lots of ways to do that.
    If you want to use a window, MFJ makes a piece that fits in the window frame. Set in place, close the window and go.
    Other folks make plates that you can put in place in of a vent... lots of methods...check the MFJ site for those.
    Other folks make other devices...a call to HRO, DX Engineers and Giga Parts should yield you other options as well.

    you got me, I did not look at his location...I don't see why they would not ship to the UK, they are online sales companies...though they all do have brick and mortar stores here in the states united.

    Take a piece of plywood scrap, make it fit at the dimension of where your window closes up to the sill, drill some holes in it for your coax to enter, seal the entire affair and you're off. Maybe have to put a piece of packing tape along the slightly open area at the other end of the window, but hey; better than making the yl all mad about putting a 13mm hole through the wall, right?
