Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Phased Vertical Antennas. Post #644.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/QvgwLoc-w.  Here's a simple way to make your vertical antenna gain more performance and directivity.  Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains the theory, design, and performance of phased 1/4 vertical antennas.  In this system, there are two 1/4 wavelength verticals, 1/2 wavelength apart.  Stan explains a basic phasing network that will give your verticals some gain (around 3dB over a monopole) and directivity broadside to the array.  A phased 20, 15, or 10 meter vertical array is easy to make and will give you a better chance to snag that elusive DX.  For more information, visit http://www.sciencewriter.net.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
