Silly Antennas

Time For Fun – Baguette Helix Antenna

From time to time, we evaluate silly antennas. For even more fun, we sometimes hold contests to see who can guess the antenna parameters.┬áThe winner of this “Guess The Gain Contest” was Stuart McAndrew (@ssshocker on Twitter) who guessed the gain exactly at 8.6 dBic. The antenna is RHCP (axial ratio is 0.5 dB) and has a peak gain (and directivity) at 1500 MHz. Results can be downloaded HERE.
