THE MOST SIMPLE WAY OF MANUFACTURING SATELLITE ANTENNAS
IN HOME CONDITIONS
The proposed means of manufacturing satellite "plates" will allow to obtain an acceptable reception quality at a much lower cost of the antenna.
For manufacturing, you need a real metal antenna, which you can ask your friends for.
Put the antenna upwards with a bulge, cover the surface with paraffin ( 1/5 of the candle ), heat the hair dryer so that the layer is thin and even. Wire (preferably steel) lay a lattice on a plate. At the intersection can be connected by a thin wire ( cell 5-15cm ). Along the perimeter, it is desirable to place a ring of wire with a diameter of 4-5 mm .
Take alabaster ( 10 kg with a diameter of 90 cm ), stir the electric drill up to the state of viscous sour cream (stir with water) and immediately pour it on a plate with a piece of iron. Spatula to level the surface ( thickness 10-15mm ). The strength of the liquid solution will be low. Instead of alabaster, you can apply a cement-sandy mortar, but the setting time in this case, instead of 3 hours, will be 28 days. If you make an antenna in a wet environment, it should be covered with a film.
After drying, the smooth surface should be painted and also stick on the paint foil (thickness 50-100 microns , which is used in cooking) so that there are no bubbles at all. Instead of a foil, you can mix paint or varnish with graphite and also try to apply it (foil of this thickness will not stretch for a long time, the layer thicker will not repeat the surface with a tolerance of + -0.5mm ).
With the antenna received, measurements were not carried out in any way, but when replacing the standard metal antenna with an alabaster antenna, the channels that “snowed” - continued to “snow” at the same level. This expresses a good result of the experiment. Durability, but the essence of rigidity - exceeds the metal.
