UHF Antenna Shielding - 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.

 Post subject: UHF Antenna Shielding
Posted: Fri Nov 18, 2005 8:29 am 
Hi

Im currently developing a system that will use two horizontally polarized recieving antennas roof mounted on a car. What i want to do is have one antenna recieving from the front and the other receiving from the rear on the car. So i intend to apply shielding to the rear sections of each antenna to isolate the reception to front and rear. I am recieving at UHF 868 mHz, does anyone have any recommendations as to what shileding materials to use?

Many Thanks

Matthew Webster

Hey dude,

I assume from the post you made a little later, that you don't want your car to look like it has a billboard on the roof! what I would suggest (please note I am a bit new to the RF game and more than a little daft) is to use a mesh type screen between the two antennas, which you should be able to get from your local hardware store. however what may work better is a type of repeater setup, where instead of using one antenna for transmit and recieve, use two, but switch between the two of them.

Hope that helps!

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...
