Simple to do 6dbi omni antenna

Recommended Posts

Could be usefull combined with a patch when used on a diversity system.

Low angle of capture so remember not to fly over it :)

Maybe good with a diversity system :)

Will it only work for RX or is it also good for TX?

What TX antenna is best to use with that, and generally in flight systems?

(Simple vertical Whip or Ground Plane antenna)

No good for TX, the signal will be better at times but dropouts will be far worse. Diversity will not save it either ;)

Stick with the standard dipole, or ground plane aerial if you fly high.

What do you think of this antenna ?

VRFLYER: Well; the omnis on my planes TX are 3 DBI. That I believe would be an improvement in signal transmission. However for the RX, I always use patch antennas, more directional iam sure you know. The patch works for me to screen out urban RF. plus the higher gain. Can this antenna be horizontally polarized?

I have flown over 1.5 miles over Lake Mead near Las Vegas NV. The video was great! Let me know if you want the U-Tube link. :D

I will make one and try it on my receiver first.

VRFLYER I just thought SWR ( Standing Wave Ratio) Do you have a meter to get the low SWR, Would that be important in tuning the antenna? :unsure:
