antenna splitter

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make a antenna splitter to couple two RX antennas to get a better coverage of the area where is flown using two GPP antennas. I found an interesting site, http://www.vhfman.freeuk.com/radio/antenna...s.html#Splitter where this was demonstrated for lower frequency antennas. Would it be possible to use the same principle for the 2.4 Ghz frequencies?

Real simple solution, use a Klarich Electronics diversity receiver. It has 2 receivers with some digital logic that switches back and forth between which ever receiver is getting the stronger signal. You can try just combining 2 antenna leads but you are asking for problems.

If you get it all right then you should get an aerial with more gain and a narrower beam in one plane eg. horrizontal or vertical. You could try making a feed horn for the same result.

If you want a splitter then try a hybrid quad.

Go with the Klarich Electronics diversity receiver. I have used it and it flat out WORKS!!! there is no messing around with splitters and trying to keep the feed lines in phase. It's PLUG and PLAY. You just plug in it and it works, that simple.
