POWER SPLITTERS / COMBINERS

(1) The power splitters shown will below enable the use of either two or four antennas. (2) The antennas and feed lines all use the same impedance of 50 ohms. (3) The MS Excel software will do all the necessary calculations for you . 50 ohms connectors

C3 C4 2 All coaxial feeds for CL connector may be of any lengths to your transceiver 3 ( L ) The inner conductor is 1/2 wave long. 4 The ends of the inner conductor ( L ) must be so spaced so that there is no influence from the closeness of the copper end caps. 5 Use copper plumbing materials Formulas : Half wave in free space for length in feet = 492/MHZ Half wave for 1/4 inch OD, length in feet = 468 /MHZ Z0=128 log 10 D/d Any size of inner or outer tubing within reason may be used provided that the ratio of the inside inner conductor OD to the outside conductor ID is configured correctly.

TO BUILD YOUR OWN Enter frequence in Mhz to be used in this box. Enter size of outer conductor's inside diameter ( D ) in this box Enter the ratio configuration for your 50 ohm antenna system in this box. ( Use 3.55or a 2 way power splitter ) ( Use 2.5 for a 4 way power splitter ) ( L length ) in inches for the inner conductor. The inner conductor OD size needed to make the impedance match. Power splitter calculation impedance in ohms. Half wave in free space ( length in inches ) Half wave for 1/4 to 1/2 OD ( length in inches ) Half wave having 66% Velocity factor ( length in inches ) Half wave having 80 % Velocity factor ( length in inches )

Input your measurements for ID and OD .. for finding your impedance between D & d Formula used in this program. Ohms Ratio D/d Impedance in ohms =LOG(128)*10*D/d 25 = 1.2 0.58 Enter (D) diameter in inches ohms = 37 = 1.76 0.16 Enter (d) diameter in inches 74.79 75 = 3.55

Ohms Ratio D/d 50 = 2.38 52 = 2.5 100 = 4.75
