The ZigZag Vertical Beam
- Six metre enthusiasts might like to experiment with this ‘Zig-Zag’ four-element vertical for lofts. Brian Williams, GW0GHF
2 Element beam designer
- This is a DOS program that will design a 2 element beam for a given frequency. The gain is about 6db's the front to back ratio is about 10 db's. The SWR will be about 1.8 to 1, so for transistor rigs a tuner is needed The only information required is the freq in MHZ..
