One thought on “Antenna Links

  1. Since the time of Maxwell when he assembled the laws of radiation and made sure all equations added to zero, antenna studies have evolved around mathematics and probabilities but no true description of what creats radiation is known. Yet the masters have supplied all the info b ut the physicists of today feel they know better.
    Points to think about.
    1. Maxwell’s equations uses the terms distributed loads only. So if you must insert a lumped load make sure you have another one to cancel it.
    2.A gaussian boundary around static particles when applied with a time varying current equates with Maxwells equation
    on radiation. Thus it is obvious that if radiators are inserted they must be a full WL to equal a period
    3 Use this to insert a non planar design into a optimizer and it will supply a gaussian boundary array( don’t preguide it to a planar form)
    4. Now repeat but bending the radiators into a smaller shape and the program will supply you a compact antenna.
    5 make yourseld a faraday cage out of window mesh and connect the coax anywhere inside and you have a receiving antenna.
    6.Remove the outside ground wire and replace with a high resister. Now you have a transmitting antenna. ( Note that particles and not waves are included with a faraday cage.
    7.Make a single curtain of mesh and connect the feed line anywhere in the front. You now have a two way antenna when a relay is used to change direction.
    8. Note that in now case is a ground plain is required with these compact antennas.
    We are all stuck with old hundred year designs only because
    physicists are stubburn on the wave/particle subject that they will not admit to adding a time varying field to a G
    aussian border equates with Maxwell’s radiation laws. Why I will never know!
    They are also too stubborn to admit that charge carrying particles are part and parcel of the Farrady shield.
    One day a ham will insert an antenna array into an optimiser
    and the question will then come up if it is that Maxwell or computer programs or the modern day physicist is wrong.
    Modern computer programs provide the answer but physicists
    avoid it. Only when an array is in equilibrium or all radiators of a WL and resonant will all forces involved will be accounted for when used in Maxwell’s equations as with boundary laws
    Engineers were correct on the “o” ring problem and they are probably correct again, but of course, silenced.
    Maybe our great grand children will force the issue of re examination to over come resistance to change by the phseudo experts.
