EP3PK'S 2 Meter UN Moxon

  Antenna on a 6 meters mast for pattern test.jpg

I would like to inform you that I have made a Moxon antenna for one of the U.N. repeaters in Tehran. I really like itís performance, hence I highly appreciate your website, which enabled me to know such antenna and make it.

 

The antenna is calculated for 170 Mhz, and it gives 1:1 SWR with great receiving comparing to our existing vertical antenna.

Since the pattern test was ok, I didn't use balun, just soldered the RG58 cable to the center of driven element.  Elements are copper wire with 3 millimeters diameter, and at the top and bottom part of antenna I have used plastic tubes to hold the wires and avoid movements. I have glued and taped the ends of plastic tube as you can see in pictures below.

I have put the Moxon on our 50m tower, beaming south of Tehran, which always had contact problems. Now it has been solved and Iím very happy HiHi.
