[amsat-bb] Antenna Wind Load calculations

Work is progressing on my new satellite antenna set up.  I have a couple of
questions for the group.


1.  What would be the effective wind area for a 2 foot by 3 foot grid (BBQ)


2.  I have a WIMO helix for L Band (Model 23-2).  The info says a wind load
of 200 Newtons.  Does anyone know under what conditions it is 200 Newtons so
I could calculate the area of it?



Thanks and 73,

Gary "Joe" Mayfield
