    Howdy, TowerTalkians -- FYI. Cheers, Steve K7LXC > * Announcing the release of a new book by LB Cebik, W4RNL * ===== Cubical Quad Notes Volume 3: Multi-Band Quad Questions By L.B. Cebik, W4RNL Volume 3 of Cubical Quad Notes extends the work begun in the first two volumes. This 3rd Volume in the series explores a number of questions involved in the design of multi-band quad beams.   Below is a PDF image from William Orr and Stuart Cowan. It is in their book "All About Cubical Quads." On pages , you will see a topic "Unbalanced (Coxial) Feed Systems For The Quad Antenna." This is an old book, but it is my go-to resource for Quads. See PDF file below. Sorry this is printed in Landscape view.

    Log periodics have thus still an hard life in front of them if they want to fight on par against directive arrays like quads or even Yagis. For more information. Cubical Quad Antenna Calculator, The ARRL Antenna Book and related books. The ARRL Antenna Book in PDF, of The ARRL Antenna Book and was interested to see a design for a 2-ele-ment quad.1 This design was based on a careful computer modeling study. I was surprised to discover that the dimensions Figure 1 — Cubical quads, like this one assembled by the author, can last a long time by using the proper construction techniques.

More about cubical quads by McCarthy, George W.; 1 edition; First published in ; Subjects: Antennas, Quad antennas, Shortwave radio.

Other Big Guns such as George McCarthy W6SUN "More about Cubical Quads" and John Koszeghy K2OB "The High performance Cubical Quad Antenna", and Big Big Gun Bob Haviland W4MB "The Quad Antenna" have also written good books about Cubical Quads and their advantages and construction.

A cubical quad antenna is a four sided, square version of a folded dipole. Incubical quads began gaining popularity with amateur radio operators. According to Bob Heil in his book, Heil Ham Radio Handbook, there were articles in QST and CQ magazine showing how More about cubical quads book build a 10 meter quad.

Cubical Quads, give you more gain, and hear better than any comparable boom length Yagi. Unfortunately for Quads, most people perceive them as to difficult to assemble, and mechanically THIS IS a big antenna, you most likely need a tower, The other worry is usually about ice storms and wind.

The cubical quad antenna likely got its name from the appearance of early 2-element versions of the array. As Fig. suggests, the arrangement of the elements makes a sort of visual, if not a geometrically pure, cube.

The history of the quad is succinctly told in the Orr and Cowan book on Cubical Quad Antennas (pp. ) and needs little File Size: 3MB. We now have dBi gain, or dB more gain than a dipole in freespace.

This is a perfect lossless quad element under ideal conditions. Notice this very closely agrees with the gain of two stacked full-length dipoles. In this case it is a little more than dB gain, but that is because I.

Cubical Quad Antennas: How to Build and Adjust QuadsAuthor: William Orr, Stuart Cowan. In the design of Cubical Quad antennas there are several competing goals or constraints that control the final results.

Three important ones are Forward Gain, Front to Back ratio, and Source Impedance. Other factors are material related - Boom Length, and number of elements. The book, Cubical Quad Antennas: How to Build and Adjust Quads by William I.

Orr, Stuart D. Cowan. Unfortunately, this book is now out of print. The article, Update on the Pfeifer Quad System, appeared in the September QST.

The ARRL website also has a number of other articles on the topic. In a way, I’m kind of geeked about doing this. Try running a Search, in general or Amazon for: 1. The Cubical Quad by Bob Haviland This one is offered by CQ publications 2. All About Cubical Quads by Orr Orr's book is much more practical and readable, but Haviland's book is good too.

Orr's book is out of print but with careful checking may usually be found used. That's how I got my copy.

A quad antenna is a type of directional wire radio antenna used on the HF and VHF bands. Like a Yagi–Uda antenna ("Yagi"), a quad consists of a driven element and one or more parasitic elements; however in a quad, each of these elements is a loop antenna, which may be square, round, or some other is used by radio amateurs on the HF and VHF amateur bands.

a very good book to design own quads and learn Time Owned: 6 to 12 months. In this interesting book,the autor and engineer Mr. John Koszeghy explains some of the quads theories but the most important in this book are the new concepts about quad modeling to. However, Front-to-back ratio can vary greatly (as much as 25 dB) from the indicated F/B.

F/B is much more sensitive to adjustments to the element length and spacing. As you can see, the Cubical Quad antenna has the same gain as a yagi with one more e the driven element of the quad has more gain than the Yagi’s driven element.

It's in the little book on cubical quads by W6SAI also, I think. May not be the right author, but the comparison graph is in that book. Of course there are all kinds of variables, element spacing etc., but in general, the thought seems right.

Think of a quad as really. Below you’ll find a brief history of the cubical quad. A cubical quad antenna is a four sided, square version of a folded dipole.

High Performance Cubical Quad Antennas 3rd Edition by John Koszeghy, K3BB: a Review. Cebik, W4RNL. John Koszeghy, K3BB (ex-K2OB) has had a love affair with quad beams for 45 years. Indeed, he subtitles his latest volume with just those words.

The first edition appeared inwith a File Size: KB. I have no accurate method to measure forward gain, but I reckon it is the text book dBd. F/B ratio is consistently S points on my S meter, for all bands m. It's a bit less on 30m, but still pretty good circa 15dB.

As with all 2 element Quads, It has a wide beam width. about 60 degrees. age occurred. More ice than that, however, would start to break things. Perhaps it is possible to build quads to stand up to heavy icing, but I doubt it is worth the trouble for antennas of the monster size discussed in this article.

The antennas I describe are large File Size: KB. A number of these quads have been built, using these formulae, with slight variations in wire diameter, but always using bare hard drawn copper have delivered the goods with no adjustment of element size, giving good gain, f/b, and bandwidth.

I emphasize once more, that if you use insulated wire, or bare copper, different to what I have used, The above measurements will not be correct.2-ELEMENT CUBICAL QUAD Fig.
