The W8IO Antenna Site - Loggi - 144-22

(updated 20 Jan 2016)

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