23cm Projects - Antennas

Click to enlarge23cm Antenna by OK1AYU
I have built this "junkbox" antenna for my first tests on 23cm with the packet node OK0NJ. The original article was published in the Slovak HAM radio magazine Radiozurnal 1/1998. The antenna on this drawing is horizontally polarized. If you need vertical polarization, just turn it 90 degrees.

This antenna is a medium gain directional antenna for mobile (portable) and base station use. I have built it many years ago for mobile operation to check out how good the signal of the ATV Relais DB0SCS is received ...

An Inexpensive External GPS Antenna by N7KKQ
If you operate APRS or just need an external antenna for your GPS receiver, here’s one that is easy to build yet offers surprisingly good performance in a compact size. ..., it uses commonly available components and materials.

Various-size coffee cans usually make useful linearly-polarized horns for 1.7GHz and 2.4GHz. A weatherproof waveguide horn for 1.3GHz (23cm) is a little bit too large for practical cans and will probably have to be purpose-built from aluminum sheet.

Click to enlargeDevelopment of a 23cm patch antenna by G6GVI
Looking for a robust design for a portable antenna to use with my new DJ-G7E, I decided to try a microstrip patch. This is just a precisely-shaped conductive plate suspended above a ground-plane; but by using PCB techniques, this becomes a simple rectangular "flat-panel" antenna.

Um einen im Aufbau befindlichen 23cm Transverter zu testen, benötigte ich eine kleine, leichte Antenne, die ohne Halterung, nur durch das Semi-Rigid am Transverter befestigt werden kann.

The HB9CV has been a popular antenna for decades, especially on the 2m band where it is commonly used for direction finding (foxhunt). Others create arrays of HB9CV antennas for DXing. Since I needed a simple antenna for 23cm (to uplink to the local ATV repeater PI6ATV) I thought it would be nice to use this HB9CV design.

Click to enlargeParabolic Dish Ring Feed by DL4MEA
For illuminating a parabolic dish with small f/D (around 0.4, not critical) a ring feed can be used. Its advantages are a wide illumination in both axis' without a large shadowing of the dish. It offers linear polarisation.

Quick and Cheap Omni Antenna for 1296 MHz by W1GHZ
The sketch in the article has dimensions for 1.7 GHz and uses 0.086 inch semi-rigid coax. I scaled the dimensions to 1296 MHz and found a piece of 0.141 inch semi-rigid coax with an SMA connector on one end.

Click to enlargeShort DL6WU yagi for 23cm by PA3HCM
In the previous Winter I built a HB9CV-in-a-box for 23cm for my uplink to the local ATV repeater PI6ATV. Although this antenna works nicely, its gain just isn’t enough when their 23cm preamp is broken (which, unfortunately, is the case most of the time). To achieve a more steady uplink, I decided to build an antenna with a bit more gain, at least 6 dB extra compared to the HB9CV. A short yagi should make this possible.
