Large Antenna: 36cm x 91cm (14" x 36")


Greetings, everyone!
After reading the fine web pages using Michael Erskine's templates, I
tried my hand at a similar project. The antenna is made of aluminum
flashing and "flat" stock, and measures about 14" x 36" (36cm x 91cm).
Construction details may be found on my web page:

It performs quite well, exhibiting good directivity, though being at
the limits for what one can expect from a dipole feed. Experiments are
ongoing with a biquad feed, and indicate that it works better with
larger reflectors.

I wrote a freeware parabola calculator program that might be useful for projects of this type.
