  • About the Edition

    For a variety of mechanical and electrical reasons, the U.S. Army prefers to use a wire antenna for its mobile applications in the HF and VHF bands. However, due to the rapid fluctuation of impedance with frequency, a simple wire antenna is not suitable. This research will look into the aspects of electronic switching of the antenna length and electronic switching of the accompanying tuning network for frequency hopping applications. Two separate schemes will be studied. The first one involves a chosen wire antenna loaded with PIN diodes. The diodes will be selectively switched ON or OFF at different frequencies to control the input impedance of the antenna. In the second scheme, a monopole antenna of fixed length will be considered and data on its input impedance over many sub-bands within 30 to 90 MHz will be generated. Tuning networks composed of resistors, inductors and capacitors will be designed over each sub-band. The various networks will then be connected via PIN diodes and selectively switched to provide matching over a much wider band

THE (VHF) DIPOLE ANTENNA At VHF and UHF, most antenna systems are derived from the dipole or its complement, the slot antenna.

Many antennas are based on half-wave dipoles fabricated from wire or tubing. The feed point is usually placed at the centre of the dipole, for although this is not absolutely necessary, it can help prevent.

"All I'm totally certain of is that any antenna is better than no antenna and the antenna should preferably erected as high and be as long as is possible or desirable".

VHF ANTENNAS. For some years now I have been designing and building my own VHF/UHF/SHF antennas. Some have been pretty standard designs, modified to suit the materials available and my construction techniques.

Most of them were designed by "rule of thumb" using information from text books and a bit of educated guesswork. antennas for vhf and uhf radio bands category is a curation of web resources on, VHF-UHF Long Boom Very High Performance Antenna Designs, Shrunken Quad, UHF VHF Folded Dipole.

Resources listed under VHF Antennas category belongs to Antennas main collection, and get reviewed and rated by amateur radio operators.

So, let’s see what your starter antenna options are. And that means simple, economic, easy to deploy -or even make- radio antennas for the VHF and UHF bands. The Groundplane. It is the antenna that uses an artificial “ground” to work. In a base antenna the “ground” is the 3 or 4 radials that extend from its base.
