Slightly off-topic for TT but beg your forebearance: I am really curious to
know if anyone has ever tried phasing half squares as a pair of driven
elements. What would the results be at 1/8 wavelength and/or 1/4 wavelength
separation? I tried to model this with NEC but apparently I'm doing something
wrong as I get no results, just a lot of whirring from the hard disk and a
blank stare from the screen. Neither 0 degree nor 90 degree phasing inputs on
a pair of half squares generated any solution.
Using a pair of half squares in a parasitic array is also of great interest to
me. Again, NEC modeling fails. Probably an operator problem, but there it is.
What happens at 1/8 wavelength spacing? 1/4?
Anybody else's curiousity piqued?
thanks in advance,
