Feeding 1.2 meter offset dish for AO-40



Guys,

Based on the radiation requirements and helix calculations by Howard 
G6LVB, I have designed a copper tape helix for the 1.2 meter dish. I 
decided to use 4.5 turns initially. The focal point is placed about 
0.7 inches from the ground plane. I am going to give the antenna a 
try in a couple of minutes on AO-40. Here are some of the pictures.
