Default Ground Radial - Steel Welded Wire Mesh Fencing -plus- K9AY Terminated Loop Antenna Group on YAHOO !


Ground Radial - Steel Welded Wire Mesh Fencing
-plus- K9AY Terminated Loop Antenna Group on YAHOO !

IIRC - On the K9AY Terminated Loop Antenna Group there is
a Message with about a K9AY Loop that is located on a Roof
of a Multi-Story Building. The Loop has Steel Welded Wire
Mesh Fencing laying under it as the Ground {Reflector}
Radials. The Owner reported that without the Radials the
K9AY was only a so-so perfromer; but with the Radials it
was everything that he had heard with other K9AY Loops
that were located directly over (About One Meter) the Ground.

Hi Jack,

I had some old wire fencing laying around, so I unrolled
20 feet of it, scraped off some of the coating, attached
it to the ground rod, covered the fencing with dirt, and
watered it. Admittedly, this is not the ideal stuff for
an earth mat, but it cost me nothing and was easy to
install (and will be easy to remove to replace with
something better.

I notice a slight (1 S unit) or so on medium and short wave.
SN ratio is a bit higher, too.

I'd never considered radials before. Thanks for the tip.

All best,

inverted-L generally boast of greatly improved
performance in transmitting and receiving.
