Abstract : An experimental analysis in the 2 MHz frequency range is performed on a multiband HF antenna which contains a two, three, or four dipole array. The antenna design equations and bandwidths are determined. The effects of dipole, feedpoint, and frequency separation on the design parameters are noted. Inverting the dipole array from the commonly used configuration is shown to significantly improve the antenna's gain. (Author)
