DG7YBN / 432 MHz VE7BQH G/Ta Table

  Issue 19, Oct. 2020




                             

      The 432 MHz G/Ta Table is a compilation of simulations of 4-Yagi-Bays at 432.1 MHz. The main purpose of this table is to enable you to select a
      Yagi design by its performance level for non-terrestrial weak signal work such as EME. Thus the G/T number presented is computed for an elevation
      of the array of 30 degrees as a typical position of the moon. Some theoretical details about G/Ta and G/T-System can be found here

     

      This is the 2nd Interactive G/Ta Chart VE7BQH: "Tsky and Tearth is now Interactive or changeable by the user."
      Preset Tsky and Tearth have changed and now are acc. ITU recommendations P.372-13, Radio Noise.
      He thanks Vladimir, UR5EAZ for coming up with the idea and developing the actual MS Excel ®.

      Interactivity is not available online, sry.

Only Antennas that have actually been built are posted in these Tables
Thanks to Vladimir, UR5EAZ for establishing the Interactive Mode in the 144 and 432 Tables
Thanks to Hartmut,  DG7YBN for his ongoing support and many inputs to the Tables
Legend:
1. L      = Length in Wavelengths
2. Gain  = Gain in dBi of a single antenna
3. E      = E plane (Horizontal) stacking in Meters. 
4. H      = H plane (Vertical) stacking in Meters.
5. Ga     = Gain in dBi of a 4 bay array
6. Tlos   = The internal resistance of the antenna in degrees Kelvin.
7. Ta     = The total temperature of the antenna or array in degrees Kelvin. This 
                includes all the side lobes, rear lobes and internal resistance of the 
                antenna or array.
8. F/R    = Front to Rear in dB over the rear 180 degrees of an antenna using either E or H plane. 
9. Z ohms = The natural impedence of a single antenna in free space.  
10. VSWR  = VSWR Bandwidth is based a single antenna over 432.000 - 435.000 MHz with a 
                    reference at 432.300 MHz. This parameter gives an indicator of the
                    antenna "Q" and what to expect with with stacking and wet weather.  
 
11. Ant G/T = Figure of merit used to determine the receive capability of the antenna
                     or array. Ant G/T (dB) = Ga - 10*log(Ta). The more positive figure the 
                     better. Ant G/T is modelled in Tant.exe at 30 degrees elevation.
   Notes:
        
1. The programs used to calculate E/H Stacking,G,Ta,Tlos and G/T are
   EZNEC 5+ by Roy Lewallen W7EL,4NEC2 by Arie Voors and Tant.exe by Sinisa, YT1NT/VE3EA or AGTC_lite by F5FOD/DG7YBN 
   This combination of software provides excellent accuracy. Segment Density is
   25 segments per half wave.
2. Temperatures initially used: Tsky=20 degrees;Tearth=350 degrees
    Temperatures now adjustable to Tsky=27 Kelvin. Tearth: Rural = 460K Kelvin, Residential = 1800K Kelvin, City = 7900 Kelvin
3. Dipole Z is measured at 432.1 MHz
4. F/R, 1st and 2nd Side Lobes (SL) have been calculated on a single antenna
5. No stacking harness losses or H frame effects are included in the 4 bay gain figures.
6. All stacking dimensions EXCEPT those marked with a "*" and "#" are
    calculated from the DL6WU stacking formula:
    D = W/(2* sin(B/2))
    Where:
    D = stacking distance,vertical or horizontal
    W = wavelength, in the same units as D
    B - beamwidth between -3dB points.
    Use vertical beamwidth for vertical stacking (as above),
    Use horizontal beamwidth for horizontal stacking.
7. Antennas marked with a "*" have stacking dimensions recommended by 
   the manufacturer or designer.
8. Antennas marked with a "#" have stacking dimensions for XPOL
   antennas by VE7BQH.
9. Antennas marked with a "+" have some or all elements over 6mm. All others
   are 4MM to 6MM.
10. FD = Folded Dipole    
11.  Convergence Correction: NEC2 and NEC 4 are incapable of handling complex 
      feed systems accurately like Folded Dipoles, T Matches, LFAs etc.
      Convergence Correction using the KF2YN Excel program is required. 
      See DUBUS 4/2010 "The Correction of Convergence Errors in Antenna
      Temperature Calculations by Brian Cake, KF2YN for details.

Antennas with good G/T can provide significant benefit with today's high noise levels. 
Other factors like ease of matching and wet weather performance should be considered in the the decision making. 
Antennas with 50 ohm feed systems and good VSWR bandwidth (Q) may be the best feed system choice.  Lionel H. Edwards

        More theory by DG7YBN

        The VE7BQH G/T tables represent Antenna G/T (dB), in short G/Ta, found at the terminals of the sum of individual antennas shown. It is clear that in contrast the
        Systems G/T as S/N in your headphones depends on the noise temperature and gain respectively loss in all following stages and even more so on the actual environments
        noise intensity per direction in relation to beam direction and individual antenna pattern. And this closes the circle. Good S/N in your headphones starts with good
        Antenna G/T. Since what is not delivered to the antenna terminals can never be made up by any PHEMT LNA and lowest loss coax nor smartest RX S/N ratio wise.
        Mind that the best LNA betters the S/N of your RX_Line but contributes noise as function of its NF.

       

        wherein G_System holds all gains and losses in the system starting with antenna gain and down to RX all stages gain. T_Rx_Line represents the sum of Noise Temperatures
        from phasing coax lines down to RX. Further information on deriving T_ant and Antenna G/T can be found in the 'TANT Manual' and 'TANT Appendix' click .
