(from the issue) begin to publish antennas designed by Nick Kudryavchenko,
No changes (compare to previous their publishing in
the Internet) are added to the description and MMANA files of
Some words about the history of the publication.
One year ago, in May 2008, I contacted with UR0GT by
e- mail and asked him about permission for publishing his antennas
design (translated in English in e-magazine AntenTop) that were
already posted by him in some forums in Russian. Nick answered
to me, since the stuff was already published in Russian and the
stuff were accessible to public in the internet, he did not mention
about my publishing the stuff in English. Nick conditions for
publishing were simple: must be indicated his authorship and antennas
MMANA files must be unchangeable.
However lots of antennas design of UR0GT (that were
published in the Internet forums) had very brief commentary. Sometimes
Nick posted in a forum just an antenna file (without any commentary).
Therefore I dared ask Nick to write some commentary to those files
and rework some antennas MMANA files. Nick answered to me that
he had no time at this summer and ever this autumn to do such
work but probably next winter (winter- 2009) he would try to do
this. So, we agreed to get in touch in the winter 2009.
To regret of all radio- amateurs Nick died at June
2008. Half of year left to his pension, where he planned to work
on his antennas and may be on his Antenna Book…. Radio- amateurs
lost very talented antennas designer….
So, I decided to publish his antenna design like we
agreed with him before at his life, i.e. no changes added to his
antenna files and his commentaries.
Famous invention of UR0GT
All antennas design from UR0GT may be pasted
to websites/media at above mention conditions.
