    New Italy's Collinear Antenna for 27 mhz 10,40 meter lenght

    I made a couple...but not in large quantity. Actually i think i only made 3 hi. Marconi got me thinking... I didnt remember i gave it a name... But i did remember the "saturn" (the bi-square antenna). So i was thinking Mercury ? jupiter? After an hour it came back hi... "Highlander" it...

    Base Unknown aluminum antenna

    Hello, Well, in theory that should be a bit stronger, though I doubt you anyone will notice ...it is not going to be "a large practical difference". A lot of guessing....( i dont like to guess) Im guessing they have used something in the 6083 ..6082 aluminium, leaning to 6083T8... I remember...

    Base Unknown aluminum antenna

    CTE is a very old brand here in EU, together with Targa, Sirio, lemm etc ... I always wondered if they were not from the same factory hi. As mentioned, they did have the "avanti sigma 4" clone..and a couple other "popular" antennas. Not known for strength, i do recall the CTE Skylab was a...

    Base Identifying 5 element yagi (direct feed)

    Agreed Dmans and hygain...especially the element holders. I dont recall that boom bracket..that would have been a "sure confirmation" perhaps some online old picuters ? Ps...though mosley/mfj did cross my mind. They all are not that familair in EU (especially the "old" ones). As far as i know...

    Here is a intetesting Antenna to think about

    hello DB, I havent looked at the model yet.. But i did read back... Could it be: what you are running into is the aspect of time...and a 2d screen. Besides thinking "3D" there is another aspect...which is time. We know the combined EM field produces our "far field pattern". The "total field"...

    Here is a intetesting Antenna to think about

    Base Moxon

    The key to any horizontal antenna is "height"... for DXing it needs to be high up...where verticals (if clear) can almost be "on ground". I agree with those who are positive. If i was forced to "pick" just one antenna and that only one would be there for the rest of my life....and i would...

    Biggest Antenna on the Planet

    Hello LC ! Considering it is 117 feet long... That is roughly 35 meters (Just amazing !!! my biggest was only half of that hihi) So that 35 meters....that equals (roughly) a boom of 3,15 wavelengths long. That is a number easy to use to compare with proven examples and would give an...

    Horizontal and Vertical -Same Time.

    Hi All !... I think if said it before here on forum. I asked a acquaintances of mine who works as a propagation analist for "radio world services" ... He said....on 11 meter.... from a "wave" point of view it isnt important which polarisation you use. (keep in mind..im not talking about...

    Base Long wire antenna for cb?

    Good morning Sir ! Well, it sure "bazzels" me ? From my point of view: It is not possible to have a wire antenna: inverted L which is only 85 feet long will show you 20dB of gain. Well, maybe it can but then it would be 20dB of gain compared to something really bad. And absolutly not to...

    Feeding and Matching my Beam

    Hi Marconi ! I was just "speaking out' what i knew about the bent radiator. Im not on a capaign either...just providing information.. Well, where did you get it from ? Maybe i have posted one of these antennas here in the past ? I think i did, using a few MACO designs ? I tried to search the...

    Feeding and Matching my Beam

    U mean with a bend radiator ? Yes, that is a well known concept. although he doesnt really wants credit (I believe?) we all give credit to K6STI for having it made commenly known, if send you a couple files of "V" yagi's too. One of the early verions was known as the "jungle job" antenna...

    Feeding and Matching my Beam

    couple files have been send Marconi. Let me know if i can help in any other way...im not much on forum. Your "mind set" to "direct fed" is perfect !.... If you have a "beam" and you like it on computer, just play with only the radiator and 1st director in order to make it resonant. I often...

    Is your email still working ? Ill send you some "f" yagi designs. (F = folded dipole) (V= v shape bent radiator) For your comparisment. Ill send the SWR plots of the "F" version to as NEC2 doesnt like closed spaced wires that much. Tnx fr ur fast reply. 73. H
