ANTENNAS FOR 100 POUND DXPEDITIONS

SWR predicted by model

SWR measured by AntennaSmith

Figure 51 SWR for Force-12 Sigma-5 on 12 meters The plots for the 10-meter band selection on this antenna showed that the Force-12 Sigma-5 performed relatively well when compared to both a quarter-wave vertical with radials and a fullsized half-wave dipole. The plots for the 12-meter band selection show that moving to this new band did not sacrifice anything.
