2m Moxon antenna by VA3OMP
Back in August I was doing some simplex D-Star and D-RATs testing with Greg, VA3OMP on 145.67MHz. He lives in the West part of Ottawa in Kanata and I live in the South in Greely so to improve the link between us Greg constructed a 2m Moxon. The antenna is built out of solid aluminium rod and as you can see he put some craftsmanship into building it. Greg kindly agreed that I could post the pictures and details here.
To determine the measurements Greg used the design program at the Moxon antenna project website. Here are the dimensions.
Greg reported the built antenna had an SWR of 1.6 :1 at the design frequency.
Here are set of pictures showing the construction.
Thanks to Greg, VA3OMP, for supplying and sharing his photographs and construction details. All photographs are copyright to Greg Speakman, VA3OMP.
