Abstract : The characteristics of many antennas were investigated and evaluated against the general specification listed below. This document presents the properties of the two (switched vee) antennas which were judged to be best suited for the application. Specification 1: The antenna is to serve as components for a 2MHz to 10 MHz communications system where the signal's propagation path includes one reflection from the ionosphere and the separation between the transmitter and receiver is such that the signal's angle of incidence on the ionosphere is 50 deg or less. Specification 2: The antenna's construction is to be such as to make it as easy, as is practical, to change the system's site.
