[TowerTalk] please advise on terminated vee beam design
Sat, 03 Nov 2001 15:08:10 +0100
i would like to ask the group wisdom for help on the following topic:
having learned that the unterminated vee beam is bidirectional and therefore
"wastes" radiated power into the backward direction i would like to
investigate into the terminated vee beam which is unidirectional - to be
used as a transmitting antenna at 100W power levels.
i do have modeling software (nec wires) to do all the fine tuning, but i
need some article which describes the general design of such an
antenna to give me the basic design rules as a starting point.
could anybody please point me to a web site covering this antenna
or send me a quick description? that would be very nice!
thank you very much in advance,

(please note, i am not talking about an _inverted_ vee (yagi style) beam,
but a vee beam)
