Linear Array Theory- Part III : by: Prof. Natalia K. Nikolova

Dear friends, I would like to give to you an interesting and reliable antenna theory. Hours searching in the web gave me lots theoretical information about antennas. Really, at first I did not know what information chose for ANTENTOP.

Now I want to present to you one more very interesting Lecture - it is LECTURE 17: Linear Array Theory- Part III : N-element linear array with uniform spacing and non-uniform amplitude: binomial array; Dolph-Tschebyscheff array; directivity and design considerations……

L-Vertical Antenna for Nearest Objects for The 40- and 20- meter Bands: By: Nikolay Kudryavchenko, UR0GT

One L-Vertical Antenna may works at the two amateur Bands- 40- and 20- meters. The main feature of the antenna is that it may be located at nearest conductive objects- for example the antenna may be placed near water drain. Antenna may be placed at a wall of a house. Inside a house there are always a lot of conductive objects- for example electrical main, refrigerator, metal tubes of house ventilation system and so on.......

Universal Beverage Antenna: by: Igor Grigorov, va3znw, Richmond Hill, Canada

 

Beverage Antennas are widely used at commercial and military radio communication. In commercial communication Beverage Antenna as usual is used as a receiving antenna. However, in military communication Beverage Antenna is used for both purposes- for receiving and transmitting applications. Transmitting/receiving Beverage Antenna was used in DX- Pedition EK1NWB on to Kizhy island where the antenna (against skepticism of some persons) illuminated its good job. So when again in Toronto I have changed my QTH and the QTH allowed me install Beverage Antenna, I did not hesitated...

R3PIN Experimenters with UA6AGW Antenna By: Aleksandr Grachev, UA6AGW, Credit Line: CQ-QRP # 48 (Autumn 2014), pp.: 19- 22.

There are below described experimenters with UA6AGW Antenna made by Sergey Tetuyhin, R3PIN. Sergey would like create an UA6AGW Antenna for 2- meter Band. He did not have schematic of the antenna for 2- meter Band. He made two antennas that he believed would work at the 2- meter Band. However his attempt was not successful. But Sergey during the experimenters found some unusual sides at UA6AGW Antenna. .......

Dipole Antenna for 40- and 20- meter Bands: By: Vasily Perov, DL1BA (ex UK8BA)Credit Line: Forum from: www.cqham.ru

 

Because I have no lots space at my backyard for antenna installation I like do experiments with shortened antennas. Below described one of my experimental shortened dipole antenna for 40- and 20- meter Bands. It takes for me only 1 and half hour for installation and tuning of the antenna. After that the dipole antenna was tested at CQ WW Contest (2015). I made 300 QSOs using 100- Wtts going into the antenna....

Modified Dipole Antenna DL1BA for 40- and 20- meter Bands: By: Igor Vakhreev, RW4HFN

In my opinion the explanation how the DL1BA Antenna (Antentop 01- 2015, pp: 53-55, Dipole Antenna for 40- and 20- meter Bands) is working at the 20- meter Band is very simple. Parts of the antenna- there are long wire (5.6-meter length) before inductor, inductor and short wire (1.5- meter length) after inductor - make 1.5- lambda dipole at the 20- meter Band....…

Antenna for 50 and 70- MHz Band: By: Alex Karakaptan, ES4UY, UY5ON

The antenna was designed several years ago, when I got Estonian call sign ES4UY. With the call I able use 50 and 70- MHz bands from Estonia. Need to say that I was in a very rare square- K049CJ. So I need an antenna for those bands. Restricted place could not allow me to create something serious. ....

Insulation RX Transformer: By: Igor Grigorov, va3znw

 

At my shack I have used a Coaxial Antenna Switch Protax CSR- 5G to change devices switched to my antenna. The switch is very convenient for amateur operation in the Air. I can easy switch antenna from one transceiver (ICOM- 718) to another one (K1) or turn antenna to general coverage receiver (Hallicrafters S-85). I use the receiver to check propagation in the Air and just to catch some interesting HF- stations....

HF Receiver for Beginner Ham: By: Viktor Lomanovich, UA3DH

 

The HF Tube Regenerative Receiver is a classical design of the Tube Era. Somebody gave me magazine with the article at the 70s. I did the receiver and got very good result. I have received lots of amateur stations with the receiver. Then the receiver was remade by me in general coverage HF- Receiver. I could receive with great quality forbidden BBC, Voice of America lots broadcasting stations and easy found at those times “Numbers Stations.” …

Two Broadband Symmetrical Transformers for HF and VHF Bands: By: Alex Karakaptan, UY5ON, ES4UY, Kharkov, Ukraine

 

For operation in the Air at all HF- Bands I use to antenna Delta. The antenna is fed by 300- Ohm Ladder Line. To match the antenna with my transceiver I use to ATU MFJ-962D. The ATU has symmetrical transformer at output. The transformer could provide good symmetrical operation … but with antennas that has low reactance. My Delta has significant reactance through amateur's bands. So the concept is not for me....
