System Blue Antennas
#1
Hi All Blitzortunger's

Can you Blitzortunger's point me in the direction of drawings / designs / plans for "non Ferrite" antennas.
Loop's or wire, I need to build up physically strong (Wind Proof) antennas for a Blue system here in Falkland Islands.
I have built up all sorts of antennas for Amateur radio use over the years so construction is not too much of a
problem. I can get hold of various sections of alloy tube, wire, insulated / non insulated in various diameters.

Regards All

You may check in the RED documentation: http://fr.blitzortung.org/Compendium/Doc...B_14.1.pdf

You'll find some info about antennas. They are the same for system BLUE.

I can not find the instructions now. I thought they were over on wxforum.net.

Someone used sheets of insulating foam cut them to to fit in a plastic trash can.

The sheets were cut halfway so they lock together and form a cross shape.

Then a small channel was cut in the edges to hold the wire which was wound.

I thought there dimensions and winding counts, but I do not see it.

The plastic trash can with lid makes a nice nice container for a loop antenna if you can anchor down.

I think this is the link.
