A redesign from the a German Military Version this 5/8 wave radiators in phase is an antenna that exhibits some degree of gain (6.0 dB)Bi-Directional, and delivers better than average transmitted signals even when installed at only 1/2 wavelength above ground.
With an installation height of 6 meters the angle of take of is 26 ° from the horizon.
The antenna has a horizontal polarization, however, if it is installed vertically, it will have vertical polarization and will be omnidirectional with a yield certainly higher than 5 octaves.
A great antenna giving an immediately notice the great difference between the two gains which reaches 6.4 dB; this means that the Zeppelin quadruples the power in transmission compared to the Super Dip, this increase is, in practice, equivalent to a point on the scale of the receiver's "S-Meter". Considering also the fact that the horizontal lobe is much narrower than the considered antenna, the final result will be a reception free of "industrial noises" and strongly directive, in the direction perpendicular to the plane containing the Zeppelin wire. Many will notice how, unlike other models, the denomination of the elevation starts from 90 degrees (equivalent to the horizon) reaches zero degrees to the zenith and then reaches - 90 degrees. NEC2 released showed impressive performance.
Built for the CB Band for the frequency values from 27.0 Mhz to 27.9 Mhz in steps of 50 Hz.
