A Reversible Beverage at ZL3IX

How do two-wire reversible direction Beverages work, an excellent document that explains fundamentals of beverage antennas. This article details the design and performance of a reversible beverage antenna. Leveraging orthogonality between common mode and differential mode currents on a 2-wire line, this antenna facilitates independent reception from both ends. While common mode signals arrive and are summed on a transformer's secondary for common mode reception, differential mode signals induce anti-phase currents, providing individual reception. Various measurements explore impedance, transmission loss, and F/B ratio, highlighting the antenna's effectiveness and areas for improvement. Notably, increasing the antenna's height significantly improved performance.
