Hi-VHF Goalkeeper Quad-Trapezoid+Spurs
1. Hi-VHF Goalkeeper Quad-Trapezoid+Spurs  (22 Jul 2014)
Hi-VHF Goalkeeper, a Quasi-Omni [accidental] variation of the Quad-Trapezoid+Spurs
was analyzed using 4nec2.

Provides Bi-Directional Pattern firmly aligned along the X-Axis with 100-110 degrees Beamwidth
and NULLs to the sides.  Although Horizontally Polarized, it also provides both
Right-Hand and Left-Hand Circular Polarization.

UHF Double Rhomboid
4. UHF Double Rhomboid  (10 Mar 2010)
UHF Double Rhomboid (18.4 ft long by 8.2 ft wide, AWG12) analyzed using 4nec2.
Although the differences were small, "best" value for Termination Resistors was 300-ohms.

Hi-VHF Circular Loop + Reflector
6. Hi-VHF Circular Loop + Reflector  (15 July 2009)
Hi-VHF Circular Loop with either Loop or Screen Reflector analyzed using 4nec2.

a) With Loop Reflector, Net Gain was 8 dBi on Ch7, dropping to 6 dBi on Ch13 with excellent SWR, except for small increase on Ch7.

Adding Loop Reflector increased Net Gain by 2-4 dB (less at high freqs) with more than 8.7 dB F/B (and F/R) using

Optimum Diameter=22-in for Half-Inch Copper Tubing.  Best F/B (and F/R) is on Ch8-10.

Optimum Diameter=21.5-in for Quarter Inch Copper Tubing (QICT) was nearly as good, with more than 7.3 dB F/B (and F/R).
Smaller Circular Loop Element sizes not analyzed since a Square Loop (Quagi) would be easier to construct.

Loop Reflector dimensions are optimized for full Hi-VHF Band coverage.
Rescaling to optimize Ch7 will have only minor-moderate impact to Ch13 F/B, F/R and SWR.
However, rescaling to optimize Ch11-13 will degrade F/B, F/R and especially SWR on CH7-10.

b) EDIT (16 Sep 2009): Added analysis of alternative Hi-VHF Loop with 28x34-in Screen Reflector.

c) EDIT (5 Oct 2013): Added analysis of alternative Hi-VHF Loop with 40x40-in Screen Reflector to improve F/B & F/R Ratios.

d) EDIT (15 Jul 2014): Added Circular Polarization analysis of alternative Hi-VHF Loop with 28x34-in Screen Reflector.

UHF Quad-Trapezoid-Loop
8. UHF Quad-Trapezoid-Loop  (11 Jul 2014)
UHF Quad-Trapezoid-Loop Antenna analyzed using 4nec2, formed by adding outer parts
of Chireix 2-Square to an Hourglass-Loop.  All dimensions determined using nikiml's
Optimization Scripts.

Two versions analyzed: Quad-Trap (NO Reflector) and Quad-Trap (15 RR).

=================================================
a) Quad-Trapezoid-Loop (NO Refl):

UHF Raw Gain = 6.7 to 8.4 to 7.8 dBi and SWR (300-ohms) under 1.8.

=================================================
b) Quad-Trapezoid-Loop + 15 Reflector Rods:

UHF Raw Gain = 10.1 to 11.8 dBi, F/B & F/R Ratio Min =19.2 dB and SWR (300-ohms) under 2.7.

Note the VERY WIDE BANDWIDTH, 60-degrees ALL across the UHF Band and the VERY DEEP
49+ dB Notch directly to the Rear.

9. V-Stack UHF Hourglass-Loop + 15RR  (11 Jul 2014)
V-Stack UHF Hourglass-Loop + 15RR
UHF Vertically Stacked Hourglass-Loops with 15 Reflector Rods  analyzed using 4nec2
where nikiml's Python Optimization Scripts were used to Optimize dimensions of the
HVH (Hollands Vertical Harness) and  Separation between Hourglass-Loops.
