wide band vhf(144-174mhz) LOW PROFILE MOBILE ANTENNA - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Wide band vhf(144-174mhz) low profile mobile antennas are hard to find. After exploring the web for the above device, I designed, built and fully tested a prototype. SPECS: 1:1.5 vswr@ a BW of 16mhz or greater, 2:1vswr @ a bw of 20mhz or better(ground plane should be at least 3/4wave dia or better). gain equal to a 1/4wave whip, can handle unlimited power, has no delicate tuning caps or coils, mounts on 3/4 inch Motorola mount, height 4 inches, installer easy, so easy even a caveman could do it.
I built and tested my first low-profile antenna back in 1966, and have been in the two-way radio industry since 1971. Have built models form 7-800mhz. This device is for sale...............dave behee

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
