KE4ERO's Hourglass loop antenna for VHF/UHF

Every month the ARRL's QST magazine makes one article free to read for non-members.

Sometimes it's an antenna article.

Designed by KE4ERO, this is a novel antenna for VHF and UHF bands.

It's very tall and skinny.

So it doesn't stick out as much as a beam might.

However it's horizontally polarised and exhibits some gain.

That's makes it suitable for VHF/UHF SSB operators, especially those in areas where most stations are in one line, eg up and down a coast or valley.

Read the Hourglass Loop Antenna article here (pdf).

PS: Like something else to read? Books by Peter Parker VK3YE are read worldwide and have been favourably reviewed.  Available in both electronic and paperback.
