Bob2. Retired Nuclear Instrumentation System Engineer (formerly with ExelonQuad Cities Nuclear Power Station and TVA Browns Ferry).
Interested in VHF/UHF/SHF weak signal work and contesting. Like to play on WSJT and anything to do with 6M.The new 4 Bay Array. 8x7el. Each Bay has 2 antennas stacked at 1/2WL ~10' (to emulate the gain of a longer boom antenna ~13dbd). Bottom Bay starting at 1WL above ground (for high angle)then 1.5WL spacing (20, 50, 80, 110 feet to the center of each bay). The 4 bays are selectable in any combination to take advantage of different wave arrival angles. Total gain with all bays selected is about 19dbd at a 3.5 degree radiation angle.
