Subject: CURIOUS ANT QUESTION
ah gonna try and stay close to english as used north of I10...
I wants to make an antenna... consisting of two dipoles cut the same
length and fed at the center with 300 ohm twin lead... the twin lead cut
the same length on each antenna to the radio....
here's the catch... i wants to put one twin lead to my radio....
through a tuner... and then ah wants to put the other twin lead to another
tuner and try to make the ant directional in one direction or the other by
adjusting the tuner connected to the other antenna.... I guess spacing of
the dipoles would need to be a quarter wave on the band of choice....
also i wonders iffin i could get other directions outta the antenna
with this method...
any feed back would be apreciated as ah gots to take down my working
antenna to try this...
Ah thanks u in advance
joel in maine
displaced and looking for warm wx...
