I was surprised at his comments so I decided to build another one and try my luck. Take one 36″ rod and pass it through. Kuldeep Antwnna 4 March at It would be nice to put some pictures of IOIos built by other Hams on this site ;- 73 and hope to work you on the bands one day.

The braid of this coax turned out to be aluminum, so it wouldn’t solder to the copper of the elements. Great post, excellent detail! November 09, No comments.

Yep It works great Now its all weather Proofed: In order for them to get a solid hold on the PVC, I used a pair of vise grips to lightly squeeze the pipe while I tightened the collars. Don’t make the tube wider, because we want it to antenns entirely inside the PVC.

Building an IOio satellite antenna

June 16, No comments. Congratulations, you have a MHz antenna! Extra elaments makes it narrow banded and requires it to be aimed spot on. We must never send a CQ, it is enough to say our call sign or to call another station we have listened before.


This antenna has a bit less gain than the seven elements Arrow antenna because the IOio antenna is equivalent to a four elements yagui antenna, but we have experienced that it has enough gain to receive the satellites comfortably.

Door verder te gaan op deze website, ga je akkoord met het gebruik hiervan. I see that is your preference at 30 degrees.

IOio antenna 2m/70cm for satellite | Bxhome

No need as they are qntenna separate feeds. De zntenna radiaal gebogen dat ging als een fluitje van een cent. The following frequencies are exclusively for satellite use: He wanted something that was “two-dimensional” instead of “three-dimensional” the Arrow is a pair of yagis at 90 degrees to each otherlightweight, and somewhat collapsible. Start marking the element holes on the wooden boom with the distance given in the design with tape measurement and iooo. Packing was first class and the product was WOW for me as it was my first semi-assembled radio kit purchase.

I take advantage of this opportunity to say hello to all hams who work this mode and all the hams from Vegas Altas antdnna.

So far received 7 votes for a total score of 7. Make two 90 degree bends in it at 4. De CJU antenna voor 70cm word veel gebruikt voor satelliet verbindingen.

All that’s left to do now is solder a piece of coax to each driven element and connect it to a diplexer, or to your dual-band, dual-antenna rig if you have one or, if there is such a thing.


You can lightly anteenna the shaft collars for now, we’ll set them up properly later. Slide one shaft collar onto either end, up to the PVC, and lightly tighten it it’s important to do this now before we solder on the other half of this element.

I finalised the test when I set the beam at about 15 degrees elevation,and about degrees in a southerly direction, and awaited VO52 on E-mailadres verplicht Adres wordt niet getoond.

The MK I Version antfnna action. So the result was excellent and I just keep turning the antenna in the the approaching VO Satellite’s direction at the moment before the SAT is in range.

I will say that Nick has a Metcal soldering station. Service provided by Google FeedBurner. But first question arises what antenna I should use? Later in Antenba 2. Dus was ik snel klaar.
