In conclusion I decided to simulate Beverage Antenna
that I used at my amateur station UA3ZNW- UZ3ZK- RK3ZK from 1990-
to 2002 year in Belgorod, Russia. Figure 41 shows the antenna. The antenna was installed
on the parapet of the 9- storey building. Antenna
length was 80 meters. The horizontal wire was located at height
about 1- meter above the parapet. Antenna wire was stretched on
several wooden masts placed near 5 meter from each other. I used
the dry trunk from small trees. Transformer of the antenna was
made according to Figure 42.
Transformer had 7 turns wound by tripled wire on ferrite ring
from yoke from Color TV. I have no picture of the original transformer.
However it looked like transformer shown on Figure 43. Transformer was placed inside a plastic
bag for protection from the weather influences. Termination load
of the antenna was made from 18- kOm
/2- Wtt Russian resistors MLT- 2 (the resistors are still in
sell on ebay) that were connected to
bridge. The load had resistance 600- Ohm.
