Antenna Range Results

Kent Britain, WA5VJB, has run our microwave antenna range for many years now.  In addition to his humor, he shares knowledge with all antenna builders who are willing to learn.  On the left is the RF source.  He uses detectors running into an HP-415E and then compares "antennas under test" against his reference antennas.

Marc Thorson, WBTEM, has run our VHF/UHF antenna range for many years now. He maintains a family of reference antennas.  These are erected in the same field as the "antenna under test".  Detectors are measured on an HP-416A Ratiometer.  On the right is Marc's source trailer with the 6m antenna currently transmitting.  Above, you can see Kent, KA2KQM, and Bruce, W9FZ, assisting on the range.  In the photos below, you can see Dave, KBPE, and Ron, KOZ measuring a 6m beam.
