Sommer Antennas

A third, more complex, solution is to mount a remotely-con-troiled coax switch at the antenna and use that to switch between bands. Whatever the method of feeding, it's best to avoid long runs (over 50 feet) of RG-58 at these frequencies due to its relatively high fosses. Use RG-8 or -213 if at ail possible. the bottom of the quad is one-half wavelength or higher above ground. When mounted closer than this to the ground, radiation is reduced at the low angies commonly needed for iong distance...

Meter Cubical Quad Antenna

Arliss Thompson W7XU 7314 SW28th Ave. Portland. OR 97219 After several years of hohum openings and low levels of activity, conditions are finally improving on the 28 MHz band.

Not only does gain help the transmitted signal, it also increases the strength of received signals from the desired direction and Knocks down potentially...
