Homebrew Antenna.?
« on: February 11, 2009, 09:44:16 AM »
Just wondering if anyone has a design for a multiple 12x  1/2wave over 1/2wave antenna.?

The standard i imagine is 1/2 wave over 1/2 wave.?

Hi G7PHN

I did several Coax Colinear antenas based on the following project link,
fot 2.4 Ghzs and I did redo the the calc to 190 Mhz  :

Even the 8 dipoles model worked better than Wimo.
I constructed with 8, 18 and 21 dipoles all working fine.
I think that 8 dipoles is enough.


Cheers

That will be 1090MHz rather than 190MHz

Yes I had already seen that one and a few simillar designs but am now a little worried about the angle of radiation being bought too low down. Not a problem for those high up, but with me living in an area full of obstructions I thought it may do more harm than good.?

Well not really, the worst problem is always going to be at low angles, anything above that is LOS, so putting the peak gain in the worst direction makes sense.
