Super Broad Band HF- VHF Antenna

 

 


Figure 6 Design of the RF transformer 1:9

 

At the design of the wide band antenna an RF voltage through RF up- transformer 1:9 is going to the antenna. So efficiency of the antenna would be better (in theory) compare to the antenna from the Figure 2 because RF- voltage across of the antenna wire should be higher compare to the simple wide band antenna. RF Transformer is wound by three wires twisted together. The winding is placed evenly around the ferrite core. For my ferrite ring I got best result with 5 turns around the ferrite core. Dummy Load for the antenna was made with 15 resistors of 6.8- kOhm/2- Watts that were bridged together. The load could stand up to 100- Watts CW/SSB for 15- minutes.

 

Note from I.G.: There are some limitations that could turn antenna from the Figure 5 to losing antenna compared to Figure 2.

 

 

SWR of the antenna from Figure 5 was almost 1.0:1.0 at the band from 1.8 to 14 MHz, then evenly increase to 2.0:1.0 at 28- MHz band. The antenna does not work at the UHF- Bands because of the limitations of the transformer.

Figure 7 shows design of the wide band transformer antenna for field conditions. Wire should not have resonance at the amateur HF- bands. Such wire may have length 23 or 12- meters. Any length of wire (more the 5 meters) placed on the ground or metal rod hammered in the ground would be acted like a “ground” for the antenna.

Transformer with Load are placed inside a small box, Two terminals “Antenna” and “Ground” are placed at the one side of the box. RF socket of a PL- Type for coaxial cable is placed at another side of the box. The field antenna (Figure 7) works from 1.9- up to 31 – MHz band.
