A Radio Mobile user's tutorial in Spanish

Radio Mobile

Manual in Spanish depeloped by EA4FSI-28T1 for radio coverage calculations using Radio Mobile. The manual also describes how to use the SRTM and GTOPO30 digital elevation models. If you are looking for information about Radio Mobile in English or French, please visit the Radio Mobile official site.

The Ancora Project

Proyecto Áncora

The Ancora Project consists on the creation of a GIS over Google Earth with data of interest regarding the national network of VHF radio repeaters of the Spanish Civil Protection's Emergency Radio Network (REMER), such as positioning and detailed radio coverage maps. In addition to this, the repeater database is exported to other formats such as Oziexplorer, TomTom Navigator and UIView, allowing to be used with portable navigation and fleet control systems.

Installation of VHF/UHF monopoles at different heights

Monopolos a distinta altura

Analysis of the effects derived from installing a VHF/UHF monopole at different heights over ground, made with 4NEC2. The optimal heigths are determined and also the heights to be avoided, as a function of the calculated gain taking into account the antenna, the mast and the ground plane.

VHF/UHF monopole ground planes with 4 radials

Planos de tierra para monopolos

Analysis of artificial ground planes for VHF/UHF monopoles, performed with 4NEC2. Includes ground planes made of 4 radials at 90 degrees and 45 degrees.

Notes on antenna simulation using NEC-2

Apuntes NEC-2

Notes and recommendations about antenna simulations using software based on the NEC-2 algorithm, developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The recommendations and rules of design have been compiled both from the manuals of some programs and from technical articles about antenna simulation.

Adcock/Watson-Watt Radio Direction Finding

Adcock/Watson-Watt Radio Direction Finding

Technical description of the radio direction finding systems type Adcock/Watson-Watt, based on the employ of four monopololes with an additional sense monopole to avoid ambiguities. Those systems are commonly used in military environments (SIGINT), radio navigation and radio direction finding during emergencies, in the MF, HF, VHF and UHF radio bands. The theoretical explanation is backed by radiation patterns made with 4Nec2 and the analysis of the demodulated signals using a function plotting software.
