There is a sketch of the antenna Astra shown in
Antenna made of from 75 and 50- Ohm Coaxial Cable RK75-4-11 and
RK50-4-11. Antenna radiator made of 75-Ohm Coaxial Cable. Collecting
line made of 50- Ohm Coaxial Cable. Antenna radiators have non
constant length. The length is maximum near the collecting line
then gradually decreased to the ends. I do not remember exactly
the length now. It was a long time ago at 1968… Feeder from the
antenna was going to a four- wire line. The line was going to
the communication center. I believe that is a logo periodical
antenna with 8- 10- dB gain.
