Greetings, fellow TowerTalk-ians,
Does anyone know of any PUBLIC DOMAIN softare (pc or sun unix) for performing
antenna element mechanical design?
I have a collection of aluminum tubing that I'd like to use for a homebrew 40m
shortened rotatable dipole.
I have a copy of s/w to compute the electrical length of tapered elements, so
this is not a problem.
What I'd like to do is to be able to design the rotatable dipole with the
materials that I have on hand with some piece of mind that it won't self
destruct during the first good wind that comes along, THEN determine it's
electrical length with the tapered element s/w. After that, I figure
determining the amount of loading necessary to make the element resonate where
want should be fairly straightfoward.
Tnx es 73,
Charlie N9CO email@example.com
