An overview of this years Field-Day Event from a RF view will be the main presentation by Mark, KC4AFU.
This talk will provide a look at this years Field Day site examining both the Near Field energy distribution and the far-field antenna patterns of the various antenna configurations used during the event.
Coupling between the various antennas will be explored as well as examining the Power Density (W/M2) calculated in and around the shelter area based on various transmitted power levels.
Explanation of both the ideal dipole and monopole characteristics will be presented and will be compare to the calculated patterns over a real ground (i.e.. Dirt…)
Note: No Maxwell’s equations were harmed during the making of this presentation….
