Hi-VHF Circular Loop + Reflector
17. 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
19. 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.

V-Stack UHF Hourglass-Loop + 15RR
20. 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.
