i finished my build and install of a Single GH10_rev2.

i can post the plans that i used for the build if someone can direct me how to send or post files to the forum. I have a PDF file and a DXF drawing file available if anyone is interested. My build is a composite of different designs i reviewed on the forum.

My biggest problem was finding a working balun. The new one from radio shack would not pick up channels 22.1 28.1 or 44.1. The Philips I got from walmart wouldn't work at all. I ended up using the Archer balun from the old antenna and it works fine.

My before and after results:

Channel Old antenna SBGH_10v2
16.1________67________78
16.2________74________78
22.1________72________78
28.1________70________78
38.1________64________80
44.1________36________70
44.2________22________70
44.3________20________70
56.1________24________55
56.2________28________52
56.3________28________52
64.1________28________49
64.2________30________40
64.3________32________43

Uploaded my SBGH10_rev2 plans to an album

I uploaded my SBGH10_rev2 plans to an album. I converted the single PDF document to individual PNG format pages which seemed to work.







i also have the CAD file in DXF format.

Very nice drawings. :) Except too small. A PDF file version would be nice.

The Philips I got from walmart wouldn't work at all.
Yeah, they can be hit or miss. Take it back and get another. You want the outdoor type.

if someone can direct me how to send or post files to the forum. I have a PDF file and a DXF drawing file available if anyone is interested.
Set up a free account (up to 1GB) at Wuala, then post the link here. http://www.wuala.com/

BTW, what was the old antenna ?

Umm, you have to make your files and folders public in Wuala, otherwise only you have access to them, heh. :p

i don't know what the old antenna was. it didn't have any visible identification on it.
If you post a picture of it, we may be able to figure out the make and model. :p
