Antenna´s name wanted - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi, guys. I am Osvaldo from Banfield, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I also am ham radio, my call is LW1DSE. I´ll make a 144 MHz antenna, that here is known as "antena de esqueleto" (Skeleton antenna????) and is derived from the slot one. Does anybody know the original english name of it?

It appears to be the electric opposite from a 1/2 lambda antenna (half wave), and it is used in aircrafts(???)

Thanks all.

Hi Osvaldo

The 'antenna' is actually used just as a driven element for 2 yagis, one above the other.

The name given by the inventor was 'skeleton slot' and you are right: it is the electromagnetic inverse of a metal sheet dipole.

If you do a search under skeleton slot you should find it.

Antennas used to be made and sold by J-Beam in the UK, but I think they have discontinued the design some years ago. However, several amateur publications give dimensions for different bands.

Thanks, Nubbage. Yes, I knew it in an old spanish tv antenna handbook (written about 1951), a friend gives me 20 years ago. But I want to do one for the 2m Amateur band, beause I like uncommon antennas!!!. And also I wanted to look for any data from Google, but I did´t know the original name. I tryed with a lot of synonimous, but unfortunately the results was few.

Thanks again!!!!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
