AMATEUR STATION G

Station G was located at a single-story residence with the ham shack inside the house. Measurements at this station were made with respect to two "inverted-V" dipole antennas. Measurements were also made in the ham shack. The two antennas were fed in parallel and were mounted on a self-supporting aluminum tower at a point about 14 m above ground. One antenna (an "80 m dipole" or "160 m short dipole") was oriented in a north-south direction, and the other (a "40 m" dipole) was directed approximately east-west. The supporting tower was located immediately adjacent to one side of the house in the yard between the house and two smaller buildings. The tower also supported a tri-band Yagi antenna at a higher elevation, but that antenna was not surveyed in this study.

The north end of the north-south antenna was about 5 m above ground and was positioned about 1 m above the roof of the house. The two wire segments of the antenna were each about 20 m in length. The south half of this antenna extended over one of the smaller buildings and ended about 8 m above ground. Measurements were made with this antenna transmitting in the 1.9 and 3.7 MHz bands.

The east-west antenna (a "40 m" dipole) had segments of about 10 m each, ending at points about 9 m above ground. Measurements with respect to this antenna were made in the 7 MHz band. Results of all measurements are given in Tables 22-24.
