Running an illegal antenna? News Nov 232010 Under the GURL antenna must be omnidirectional and vertical, unlike this one! 3 Responses to “Running an illegal antenna?” Bryn Jones says: 26 Nov 2010 at 03:58 This is a dual band dipole antenna admin says: 26 Nov 2010 at 06:51 With reflector, essentially a Yagi and directional in nature. Bart Kindt says: 03 Jan 2011 at 09:09 The General User Licence for LPFM does not state anywhere that the antenna should be omni-directional. You can use a 10 elements Yagi if you want. As long as it is vertical polarized, and… as long as: The maximum radiated power shall not exceed 0 dBW (1 W) e.i.r.p. Which means, you would feed about 100 mWatt into such an antenna to get the 1 Watt e.i.r.p. (in one direction) And while the example of a 10 elementrs yagi may be over the top, I can easily see situations where stations are close together, where 3 or 4 elements yagi’s can be used to beam the tranmission into the required area of Station A, while reducing the signal into an area of another station B, to reduce interference!
