Corona RP6D1 35MHz aerial length
« on: November 20, 2018, 17:47:40 PM »
Could anyone help me with the above please?

I've managed to snap a bit off the aerial and have lost the "bit".  :embarassed:

TIA

Normal length is around 8.7 metres ( wavelength etc....) so if it were 1/8th, then around 90-100cm....should suffice.

Near enuff for farm work.... :nananana:

Whatever measurement you go for, just ensure you do a range check before comitting to the air.....  :xx

Futaba 35 rx aerials were always a metre. You wont go far wrong with that.

Thanks everyone.  :af

BTW I've never had any range problems. (I shouldn't have said that, should I?)  :xx
