The W8IO Antenna Site - Loggi - 144-19

(updated 18 Jan 2016)

2 Meter Loggi - Optimized for Gain, Clean Radiation Pattern and high F/R
This particular Loggi was created and optimized for high gain, a clean radiation pattern with small sidelobes and a high F/R at 144.1 MHz.  The plots are shown below. Here is the NEC2 file.
