Modelling a 40m Dipole at Various Heights

Last time we looked at the performance of a 40m dipole at 7.5 m or 3/16 wavelengths high. We discovered that its DX potential was limited but the high angle radiation made it useful for NVIS service. Now we will look at the change of performance as we increase the height of the antenna up […] Continue reading
