Re: 2.4 GHz Helix & static type noise

G'day Bill ( and all others ). Well the position of the feed is an
interesting one. I asked LOTS of people and the most given answer for feed
point location was at the end of the first turn of the helix ( working from
the feedpoint ). I have no idea weather this is right or wrong but it worked
for me. I tried with the focal point at the helix reflector, 1st turn, 2nd
turn and everywhere in between, on receive I could not tell any difference,
in the finnish I used the first turn at focus and left it at that.

Cheers Geoff VK3JDG
