UHF 3-Bay Hourglass-Loops - NO Refl
3. UHF 3-Bay Hourglass-Loops - NO Refl  (19 Nov 2014)
UHF 3-Bay Hourglass-Loops (NO Reflector) analyzed using 4nec2.

Multiple versions were analyzed with different methods for Combining Antennas:

a) Three EX Statements, emulating a PERFECT 3-Way Combiner.

b) Two "Shortest Path" Feedlines, SAME size as Hourglass Center Wire.

c) Two "Shortest Path" Feedlines, DIFFERENT size as Hourglass Center Wire.

I seen a different way of doing the trapunto. It is easier and faster but you will not see the effect until it is quilted.

UHF CM4221HD (Hacked) - No Reflector
8. UHF CM4221HD (Hacked) - No Reflector  (18 Oct 2013)
UHF CM4221HD (Hacked) and NO Reflector analyzed using 4nec2.

CM4221HD measurements per fol. smpowell55 posts:

UHF Raw Gain = 7.4 to 12.2 dBi and SWR (300-ohms) under 2.6.
Hi-VHF Raw Gain = 4.1 to 4.2 dBi and SWR (300-ohms) = 17 to 1.1.
SWR on Ch7-10 degrades Net Gain & EVM (Error Vector Magnitude), but may be adequate for strong stations.
NOTE: As-shipped PCB Balun KILLS VHF.  Above Hi-VHF performance presumes replace with
conventional Transformer (Cylindrical) Balun.

BowLength = 7.9-in, Inner-Inner Bowtie Spacing = 9.84-in, Outer-Inner Bowtie Spacing = 8.46-in,
Tine Separation = 3.94-in.  Feedline Separation = 1.18-in, with 0.8-in at Crossover (2" from Outer Bowtie).
16 Rod Reflectors: 23.6" Long with 1.93" Spacings for Total Height = 30-in.  Separation from Bowties = 4.25-in.

It is presumed that anyone interested enough to view this webpage will
implement the "Hacked Balun" modifications per photo in fol. rabbit73 post
(flip over the Feedlines going into the Balun plus an additional offset):

10. horizstackff4dblanglerefl+HHH  (17 Oct 2014)
Horiz-Stack FF4 + DoubleAngleRefl + HHH
UHF+Hi-VHF HFF8, a Horizontal Stack of 2 ea Free-Form 4-Bays (FF4) with Double Angle Reflectors
(each 48" H x 36" W using 2x2-in Grid) and HHH (Hollands Horizontal Harness) were analyzed using 4nec2.
Essentially all Dimensions were determined using nikiml's Python Optimization Scripts.

Performance was slightly "Better" at THREE notable Stacking Distances:
34.821-inches (NO GAP, Continuous Reflector), 35-inches (Metal-to-Metal about 1/4-inch)
and 51-inches, which are analyzed below.
There were notable Stacking Distances further out, but none were particularly "Better".

Although the differences are only a few tenths of a dB, Stack Distance = 51-inches was just
a bit "Better", esp. Hi-VHF, than at 35-inches.  The wider Separation may also be slightly
"Better" at combating Multipath Fading due to the reduction in Statistical Correlation
between the two Antenna signals.  The "NO GAP between Reflector" alternative was slightly worse.

a) Horizontal Stacking Distance (4-Bay Center-to-Center) = 34.821 inches (NO GAP between Reflectors).


b) Horizontal Stacking Distance (4-Bay Center-to-Center) = 35-inches (0.18-in GAP between Reflectors).

c) Horizontal Stacking Distance (4-Bay Center-to-Center) = 51-inches (16.18-in GAP between Reflectors).
