Anyone know the number to work out 1/4 wave length using D10 cable?
Also, anyone had experiences using it?
Cheers
Surely that is the wrong way of looking at it?
D10 cable is just that - a cable! It can be turned into an aerial and tuned to a frequency with the simplest of tools - a wirecutter!
What frequency do you want to send/receive? Then use the calculation:
Wavelength (m) = speed of light(m/s)/frequency (Hz)
As a part-time geek, I always check that I have the correct formula by using Radio 4 which transmits on 1500m Long Wave at 200KHz:
Lambda = 300,000,000/200,000
which in this case = 1500m.
Insert your own frequency and divide the result by 4.
