6 Element Mobile Array Video

6 Element Mobile Array Project Started October 20, 2014 ( 10/12 Meter Band )

       

 

Greetings. Working conditions 100% mobile, ic-706. Antenna is my own design: 4 el mobile vert array. Took me 6-7 months to master the design. Array works extremely well, very directional, excellent side rejection. I enjoy designing mobile antennas. Next project is a true 1/4~ mobile vert with no coil to op on 10/12/15/17m. For 15/17m it can only be used statically due to length but will be mounted on ball mount on vehicle. Hope to meet you soon on air. 73 de KD0WQN.

                      

UPDATE 1:

Started the coil free, mobile 4 element array design that will allow operation on 6/10/12/15/17 m. The driven element , reflector and two directors are telescopically extendable to 15', allowing tuning for 17m. In the photo you see the coil-free telescopic antenna, 1" diameter base, setup on stainless steel ball mounts. This is a photo of the 4-el mobile vertical array beam setup to proper length and taper for 10m.

These telescopic antennas can be used at 4ft length through 15'. I will premark 6/10/12/15/17 bands on antenna for as perfect an swr possible. This will allow for quick changeover from band to band. More updates to follow.

UPDATE 2:

2-el Array used for 17m. True 1/4 ~         17 m Driven Element and Reflector
