My new project;
A dish antenna.
I am QRV on all bands from 1.8 MHz to 1.3 GHz, but only on 144 MHz I am
able to hear my own
echoes from the moon. This should be corrected.
After working more than 500 initials on 144 MHz, I thought I
had to find a new challenge.
I have started a slow process assembling and a erecting a dish antenna.
Below is a picture of the dish, used as a TVRO
antenna many years ago.
3.2 m dish under construction.
I have to put the dish some where, so I started to dig a small hole.
Maybe this is the right place, there is already electricity!
After I had started to mount the dish, I thought it was too small.
This looks better;
This dish is 8 m in diameter.
The dish was collected at OZ6OL, Hans, last summer. Hans thought it was
for his interest in frequencies above 3.4 GHz, where he already is
using a 5 m dish.
I made a first attempt to verify its shape;
It looks pretty much like a parabola.
To be continued.
