Dipole Antenna Center Insulator for SO239

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/9625

Building dipole antennas is always some kind of improvisation. Center insulator is quite simple and may be made in short time with jigsaw and drill.

As I jumped in CNC world I need some simple tasks to learn how to use FreeCAD and other software. So, dipole center piece is ideal just for that. I’ve finished project and learned a lot in the process.

Finished projects is uploaded to Thingverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4149187

You may use CNC mill or 3D printer to make this part. Pay attention to use material strong enough to survive possible strong forces.

Dunax GPN-4B antenna construction details

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8733

After few years of sitting on top of my apartment building I decided to bring my Dunax GPN-4B antenna down for repair as top capacitive hat was broken. I found out that there actually no technical details about fixing it. So I went through some work of gathering such information.

First I found out that manufacturer is out of business. Antenna is not in production any more and manufacturer site is down. I asked help from fellow hams, some sent me some info they had, some sent me contact info for manufacturer.I also used my own antenna to take measurements, so finally I got quite complete details that I believe could help other fellow hams trying to repair their own antennas but also ones that want to build similar antenna. […]

Build grid dip meter adapter coil for antenna analyzer

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8706

Antenna analyzer like MFJ-259, MFJ-225, MiniVNA and similar may be used as simple grid dip meter for measuring coils, traps and capacitors. All you need is grid dip meter adapter coil which you may buy (costs for MFJ adapter set is about 30 USD) or make it by yourself for few USD.

If you want to build on your own here are dimensions of original coils sold by MFJ.

Small coil for short wave frequencies: coil diameter 15mm, coil length 15mm, 30 turns of 0.5 mm copper wire wound on PVC tube. Coil inductance should be about 3.6μH. […]

портабл вертикална антенаШтап је од фибергласа, дуг је шест метара, а тежак свега неколико стотина грама. Довољно је чврст да се на њега може окачити вертикална антена па и дипол. Склопљен штап је дуг 110 центиметара тако да је прихватљив да се носи на ранцу.

Антена је класичан монобанд дипол за 14 MHz, само је монитран тако да се врући крак окачи на врх штапа и виси као усправна антена, а други крак се постави под углом од 45 степени као један радијал и антена практично ради као ГП са једним радијалом. Антена је умерена и SWR је 1:1.

Зрачење је одређено смером радијала, тако да се премештањем радијала око антене може мењати и смер зрачења. […]
