time to play

time to play :devil

Code:
CM 4nec2 file by wildwillie , this copy play with the width, file not optizmed, work in progress
CM Current AGT 1 ( or close to it)
CM SWR  I always have it below 2 across the UHF band
CM don`t a just anything but the width and length
CM if you re-a just width and or length then re-a line feed point back to center
CM  then re-a just AGT back to 1
CM=============================================================
CM Do not a just any element bars spacing, but a just top and bottom element spacing you will though LOL
CM I need some feed back on the width players 
CM please post back your widths to Area 51 and the SWR and DB

WW X1321: I don't know WHY....but there is some sort of SERIOUS PROBLEM in that 4nec2 File....which does NOT match Results calculated by nikiml's EVAL:

1) Triple Stacked "Clothesline" [for want of a better name], PER 4nec2 provides UHF Raw Gain = 7.5 to 9.7 to 7.4 dBi with SWR under 1.6. BUT when analyzed using nikiml's EVAL function, UHF Raw Gain is NEGATIVE: -10.5 to -5.4 dBi, with SWR under 1.6.

2) If I REMOVE the MIDDLE "Clothesline" Antenna, PER 4nec2 it provides [very unbelievable] UHF Raw Gain = 22.0 to 12.1 dBi from 520-698 MHz...but it BLOWS UP below 520 MHz. And EVAL says UHF Raw Gain is NEGATIVE: -10.1 to -8.8 dBi from 470-698 MHz [does NOT Blow up], with SWR under 1.9.

3) And if I REMOVE the TOP and BOTTOM Antennas, leaving just the MIDDLE "Clothesline", PER 4nec2 it provides [very unbelievable] UHF Raw Gain = 18.0 to 5.8 dBi from 590-698 MHz...but BLOWS UP below 590 MHz. And EVAL says UHF Raw Gain is NEGATIVE: -10.2 to -5.2 dBi from 470-698 MHz [does NOT Blow up], with SWR under 3.0.

4NEC2 FILE for UHF TRIPLE STACKED CLOTHESLINE [with minor tweaks]:
[After I added "EK" and other "standard" commands plus my usual FR/RP and CMD-EVAL Statements.]
[I also deleted unnecessary "accuracy" beyond 3 decimals to improve readability...but did NOT "FIX" GW13/14 inconsequential Z-Coord glitches....or AGT.]

holl_ands this antenna is making me think . it holds swr and ohms. adjusting the width takes out frequencies, and shows massive gains . point at 11 inches wide for wire one . I high light one side of element move it out till element before 2 inch feed gap , that way all elements scale with the first one. run AGT test correct to 1 then run a scan from 470 to 700 , no gain showing then theres a giant jump in gain as high as 42 db then drop down to 10 db by 700 mhz.

i don't have the python script running yet

my heads spinning on this one

Holl_ands I redid the clothesline when adjusting AGT to 1.001 said at 470mhz I was getting 7.53 dbi
ran a sweep 470 MHz 18 dbi and falling , down to 4 dbi at 700mhz
this time I had front to back gains up to 25
theres a certain point in the feed line spacing were dbi goes negative
Code:
CM redid elements and spacing. Found something interesting, zoom in on feed point in Geometric editor.
CM AGT corrected to 1.001
CM Click on XY view zoom in Grid = 5.e-3
CM see how far feed piont is away from ZYX=0 , Its there for you to move back -x 0.175
CM after you first run a frequence sweep then do above step
CM watch what happens

CM UHF Triple-Stack "ClothesLine", 4nec2 file by wildwillie, 26Feb2018
CM this copy play with the width, file not optizmed, work in progress
CM Current AGT 1 ( or close to it)
CM SWR  I always have it below 2 across the UHF band
CM don`t a just anything but the width and length
CM if you re-a just width and or length then re-a line feed point back to center
CM then re-a just AGT back to 1

CM Do not a just any element bars spacing, but a just top and bottom element spacing you will though LOL
CM I need some feed back on the width players
CM please post back your widths to Area 51 and the SWR and DB

Unique Hi-VHF and UHF design - what do you think?

I was playing around with a new design for a UHF antenna made from 1/2" copper tubing. I've got access to scrap copper, so it works for me. I decided to scale it to Hi-VHF. I found that this size had good numbers at both Hi-VHF and UHF. I like how easy it is to work with the soldered copper. Smaller UHF antennas make sense out of 1/2" copper, but this larger one will use a lot of copper tubing. Any ideas of other materials and build methods for this antenna. I'm curious to see what people come up with using other materials and if anyone can improve the gain on either the UHF or Hi-VHF. SWR is pretty good, and impedance isn't terrible. Hi-VHF pattern is pretty directional, and UHF is quasi-omni.

Code:
CM Hi-VHF and UHF antenna made from 1/2" copper tubing and soldered joints.
CM Designed by ljhavener.
CM Has gains of around 8db across the Hi-VHF band
CM The UHF goes from 4db to a high of CM 10db and back to 4db.
CM Uses a lot of copper, so I'm curious what other ideas poeple have for
CM build materials and methods.

Picture is of one of my earlier UHF antennas, that is similar to this antenna, just a lot smaller.


Let's see where this one takes us.

HU_BiQuad+3Loops, by ljhavener:

Very nice Hi-VHF Performance, incl. SWR on both Hi-VHF and [most] UHF.
But note significant Gain Loss on Lowest and Highest UHF Channels.

I used holl_ands' model of 300ohm's batwing nec2 model, rescaled it for the new UHF TV band, and stacked it vertically (two sources, no phasing/combiner). changed it to use rod reflectors instead of the chicken wire (for no good reason)
