New beam for 70MHz
Last weekend with Leonardo IW0AGX we have built and installed a new antenna for 4m band, a 4.9m boomlenght 6el. LFA. We used the boom and the insulators from an old 5jxx6 Yagi.
The antenna worked immediately without any modification to the measures of G0KSC.
With Alessandro IZ0UME we plot the horizontal lobe and the result is a clean pattern as expected. (Edit: the plot seems suffer from some compression at high levels, I will try to acquire again)
Short test on air, worked HA1YA on meteorscatter and IK5ZWU with nice tropo signal.
The only drawback is the reduction of the elevation of the 2m antenna to maximum of 45 degrees.
