Re: 1/4 Wave Verticle Antenna for the FM-02
Great discussion!! I do have a couple of questions though.
(1) Why would the GP antenna not be susceptible to CMC on the feedline? I did a google search this morning and read a couple of articles that were written about CMC on the feedline of a GP antenna.
(2) Any issues with adding some 45 degree fittings on either side of the T and bending the radials 45 degrees to get the feedpoint impedance closer to 50 ohms?? Do you not want the radial to come into contact with the PVC???
edit: Here's one of the articles I pulled up and read this morning : http://www.w8ji.com/ground_plane_verticals.htm
2 Ren 24SS / 4 REN 16SS / 2 REN 48LSD controllers
8 Mighty Mini RGBW floods
2 Helix V3 controllers and Vixen to rule them all
