The antenna is a version of a shunt fed loop (Reference 1).
However, the antenna has some advantage compare to a version from
- Input impedance is closed to 50 Ohm.
- The antenna has more narrow diagram directivity.
- Easy to installation. It could be hanged between trees, trees and
1 shows the antenna at a horizontal installation. Figure 2
shows the diagram directivity of the antenna at its height 5 meters
over real ground. Mostly vertical polarization is at the installation.
shows the SWR the antenna at its height 5 meters over real ground.
shows input impedance the antenna at its height 5 meters over
real ground. The plots were taken with help
of MMANA (Reference 2).
