The dimensions of the 15- meter Band antenna Strela were calculated with formulas from the Figure 2.
It has got: 341.0- 237.0- 104.0- cm. However the real antenna
did not shot the resonance. Figure 6 shows parameters of the antenna at the frequencies
from 1 up to 30- MHz. At the figure
Red color shows SWR Green color shows R Blue color shows Z. The
real Antenna had resonance at 20- MHz.
Input impedance of the antenna was near 30- 40- Ohm at the frequency.
The resonance frequency of the antenna was lowered due to the
low height of the installation of the
The antenna was tuned in
to resonance by shortening of the antenna parts. The right dimensions
(at UA3NFI installation) were: 325.0- 225.0- 100.0- cm. Figure 7 shows parameters of the
antenna at the frequencies from 1 up to 30- MHz.
Input impedance of the antenna was 60- 75- Ohm.
The antenna worked fine.
However UA3NFI could compare the antenna only with dipole for
the 10- meter Band that was tuned to the 15- meter band with ATU.
Antenna Strela gives +10- dB over the 10- meter dipole.
