Re: loop yagis



I need a good uplink antenna for the new birds, and have no real space on 
the boom to add a yagi.  This sounds like what I need; do you have any 
pictures?  Also, more details on how you do the filtering to keep from 
frying the 2.4 preamp!

I have a screen-lined grill dish, with a canned helix feed to a Khune 
preamp.  See:  http://home.jps.net/~gregd/Dsc00201.jpg.  Would I just put a 
single 1-wavelength loop around the outside of the helix at about the focal 
point?  That would be right at the front of the can...

Bob,
For ATV I have used a Conifer BBQ grill type 2.4 GHz antenna with a Loop for
1.2 GHz in front of the 2.4 GHz feed. The 1.2 side has plenty of return
signal in the order of 18 dBi for ATV work. I haven't seen a loop yagi that
will touch it in performance. I run full duplex with filters on both
frequencies 1253.25 receive and 2441.5 transmit with 10 W. I am able to work
the W6ATN repeater from 40 + miles.
