Re: 1/4 Wave Verticle Antenna for the FM-02
Thanks for the replies, gentlemen. I was thinking from reading Joe's paper that the common mode currents were negated by using an unbalanced antenna design, until I read the article I attached and some others I found. That's why I was asking for the clarification. My concern isn't so much for the transmission area as it is the protection of the transmitter. I remember reading some posts last year about some forum members' transmitters giving up the ghost, and I believe that's when RF Burns brought up the idea of a low power VSWR and a low pass filter for the output of the transmitter.
edit: Sad to say, but I actually took an antenna theory class many moons ago while in college. What I remember from that class I could fit into a ferrite bead casing.
