Physical calculations

Calculated measurements for antenna components
Added by Aaron Harper about 7 years ago

The measurements for antenna components are as follows:

  • Phasing line: 2.7745" of RG-62 90 ohm coax cable (I have nearly 1000 feet in stock).
  • Body tube: 4" of 1.5" black ABS tubing (available at Lowes or other hardware store).
  • Ground plane: 6.3" diameter disk of conductive rip stop fabric.
  • Ground plane radial arms: 2.3925" of rigid material (need not be conductive).
  • Aerial length (circumference): 13.7075" of 12ga copper wire or better.
  • Distance between bottom of aerials and ground plane: 1.6475".

Note: All parts have some tolerance to variance, the measurements cited were the precise mathematical ideals based upon ideal conditions and materials. Some tuning will be required.

Thanks for getting this going, Aaron. I'd like to see the process for these calculations documented. Did you do them by hand or in a spreadsheet or in some other tool? It would be great if you had a source file (open office spreadsheet, analysis script source, etc) that we could post in a DMSF Design Files folder.

I put together a simple spreadsheet to do so... I will post the file to the design files folder.

if you are the one who likes the technical device then use Linux machine due to the fact it's for a good deal expensive. The percentage movies which you may watch and if you want then you definitely go for it.

Someone is talking about something Physical calculations. It would be helpful if the uploader adds something about the topic here for the sake of user’s convenience. We can take buy assignment uk. There is nothing descriptive about the topic so it would be great if for the sake of users someone adds some details here.
