  Hi Dave, WB6LLO

      For additional information read


      and look at Fig 22-7 page 10 of 20 Radiation Pattern of the 1 1/2
      turn 1,25 wavelenght Quadrifilar Antennas.

    Tnx, Dom for that info.

    I received a number of requests for quadfilar information, again.


    and see the five files starting with the pic Quad2.4gigs

    Be very precise with the measurements, particularly on the 435...
    I scaled it from the 2 meter, made a slight measuring error on the driven filar, shortened it by 1/4" and the swr went from 3 to 1 to 1.6 to 1....

    And use the BEST "N" connectors and coax that you can find, the most expensive part of the antenna....
