Post question about STACKED DIPOLE ANTENNA Reply with quote
I was considering another antenna, but I'm slowly leaning toward the Stacked Dipole Antennal. My question is..is it omnidirectional? If not, which way do I position it for max transmission? Thanks!

What wavelength or fraction of a wavelength will give the best results for stacked dipoles?
