Abstract:

The use of multi-tower arrays for Loran C and D antennas was investigated since increased power, decreased physical vulnerability, and decreased antenna voltages can be realized. The test was performed on antenna models with a size reduction factor of 100. The measured test data was reduced to antenna and interface information practical for selecting a suitable antenna array, composed of 400-foot towers with top-loading elements forming an umbrella.
