Bottle Antenna for 145 MHz

 

 

 

 

6.           Fix the OMEGA- counterpoises to the Stud with the help of the Screw-nuts. The counterpoises should be at 90 degree to the Vibrator and to each other.

 

7.               Fix the OMEGA- counterpoises to the Stud with the help of the Screw-nuts. The counterpoises should be at 90 degree to the Vibrator and to each other.

 

8.               Install Coax (7). Central core is soldered to 3-1/3 tap from the Vibrator, the braid is soldered to the Tinned plate (4).

 

9.               Take a Bottle from dry drink. (I know, RA1TW always prefers a bottle from beer!. I.G.) Do a hole in the screw - top of the Bottle, cut the bottom of the Bottle, cut four slots for counterpoises, and then, install the Bottle (see photo) on the Antenna.

 

Th That is all the Bottle Antenna is ready!

 

 

 

 

Tuning:

 

The best way to adjust the Bottle Antenna is to use Meter of Amplitude vs Frequency Response characteristics. The device is switched to the Bottle Antenna and we see the frequency characteristic of the antenna. Stretch out the Matching spool or cut lengths of the Vibrator and Counterpoises if the resonance frequency of the antenna is below then 145 MHz. Gripe the Matching spool if the resonance frequency of the antenna is higher then 145 MHz Then select the tap for the best SWR. It is possible to match with the antenna a coaxial cable with any characteristic impedance 50 or 75 Ohms.

 

RA1TW

 

Of course, you can adjust the antenna with the help of only SWR meter or VHF - bridge.There are 8 such home - made Bottle Antennas at Novgorod. All antennas work very well. They provide good communication as inside city as from city to a country for a distance more of 100 kilometers.
