There is presented 4- element antenna for the 145- MHz Band. Antenna has good SWR at the band. Antenna does not require follow to strictly dimension of the elements. So the antenna may be done ever by a ham who has no large experience in the antenna building.

 

Antenna has 50- Ohm input impedance that allows feed the antenna directly by 50- Ohm coaxial cable. Figure 1 shows schematic of the antenna. Figure 2 shows design of the Gamma - Match. Antenna reflector antenna made of tube/rod in diameter of 5- mm. All others antenna elements of the antenna made of tube/rod in diameter of 8- mm. Gamma match made of wire/rod in diameter of 2.5- mm.

 

The antenna has reflector with bent ends. It is done to improve F/B ratio. Anyway you may play with model of the antenna in MMANA and check what you could reach.

 

Figure 3 shows Z of the antenna. Figure 4 shows SWR of the antenna. Figure 5 shows DD of the antenna.
