We have a VHF Omni directional antenna, 2.5 W and 119 MHZ (approximate) mounted on top of a commercial hanger. Access to the antenna is out of the question because of the lack of fall protection. Service personnel have expressed apprehension over accessing the antenna.
We’re trying to come up with a solution that minimizes the risk to service personnel
One idea is using two VHF antennas mounted at 8 feet elevation at diagonally opposite sides of the hanger with a Wilkinson Power-Divider at the VHF transmitter to ensure that the two antennas are properly phased. The VHF Antennas would be mounted at a much lower elevation (8’) on each side of the Hanger.
- Two antennas are used because of the obstruction caused by the hanger when mounting them at 10'
a. Do you have any thoughts on this? b. Do we have a reasonable chance of success? c. Is this idea of any merit?
