OK! Now that the transition is over with,...... I'M BORED!
Buzz Lightyear's often quoted catchphrase:
"To infinity ... and beyond!"
It's time to start working on the UHF/VHF 'Super-Hawk' [the next generation]
Vertical Stacked SH--> one up + one down, but where to put the balun feed points?
Option A] Center fed with a 4" gap at the 4:1 balun feed point .
Option B] Upper & lower fed using 2" feed gaps and phase lines with the 4:1 balun at the center point of the phase lines?
Option A] 4" gap at center feed
Option B] 2" feed gaps using phase lines
Element leg spacing & heights will remain the same as the SH#289 design.
Leg lengths from top to bottom of the individual left element & right element:
15", 6.5", 8.5", 8.5", 6.5", 15"
All bends are approx. 85° bends
The four [top/bottom/left/right] 15" legs stick outward at approx 45°
I'm going to run a hard-test mock-up version first to see if it even works, then I'll post a sketch for the DHC's NEC gurus.
It probably will become more directional than omni/multi-directional.
