*PRODUCT WATCH* 2m Quad Antenna


s-l225Please see above a diagram for a 4 element quad provided by DX Adventure Radio Club (DA-RC) member and antenna expert 19DA109 Marcel in the Netherlands.

This ‘weapon’ is for use on the 2 meter amateur band, comprising frequencies stretching from 144.000 MHz to 148.000 MHz in International Telecommunication Union region (ITU) Regions 2 (North and South America plus Hawaii) and 3 (Asia and Oceania) and from 144.000 MHz to 146.000 MHz in ITU Region 1 (Europe, Africa, and Russia).

Telecommunication on this band is typically conducted locally within a range of about 160 km yet this particular quad is known to break new ground.

Driver/Director/Reflector measurements, materials, spacings and instructions have also been included in the diagram.

Thanks to 19DA109 Marcel for sharing this info for the 2m users amongst us.
