Practical Balcony Version of an Old Military Car Antenna

 

 

Practical Balcony Version of an Old Military Car Antenna

 

 

 

By: Sergey Sushko, ex UA9LBG

 

 

Wide flat dipoles were widely used on the roof of Soviet Radio Communication Car in 40- 50 years of the 20 century. It was a flat rectangle made of aluminum tubes in 10 20 mm diameter that has length near 2 meter and wide near 0.75 meter. Inside the rectangle there were installed several aluminum tubes (having diameter 10 20 mm) in bridge. Their ends were welded to the narrow sides of the rectangle. Version of the antenna was written at Reference 1. At my opinion the design looks like Clothes Dryer. So I decided make the antenna at my balcony in way that everyone believes that is the same Clothes Dryer. Figure 1 shows design of the antenna that was made by me in 90s.

 

The antenna almost repeat the design of the Car Antenna however instead of aluminum tubes it was used copper wire in plastic insulation in diameter of 2- mm (12 AWG).
