FIELD INTENSITY EFFICIENCY OF VEHICULAR ANTENNA AT-912(XE-2)/VRC
ARMY ELECTRONICS LABS FORT MONMOUTH NJ
Pagination or Media Count:
Field intensity measurements of Antenna AT-912XE-2VRC, also known as Improved Center-Fed Whip, are compared to measurements of a half-wave, sleeve type, vertical dipole cut to the test frequency. Each antenna, in turn, was mounted on a 34-ton weapons carrier vehicle. As pattern circularity was confirmed by other tests, only head-on readings were taken. The Center-Fed Whip Antenna was found to have at least the same gain as the unity-gain antennas throughout the operating range of 30 to 76 mc.
