STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR BIQUAD ANTENNA KIT

OK HERES THE BREAKDOWN ON ASSEMBLING OUR KITS!! EASIEST ON THE WEB!!

FIRST YOU NEED TO PURCHASE ONE OF OUR KITS, OR BUY ALL THE PIECES INDIVIDUALLY, BUT OUR KITS ARE DESIGNED TO MAKE ASSEMBLY AS EASY AS POSSIBLE    

HERES WHAT YOU GET IN OUR BIQUAD ANTENNA KIT:        

*COPPER BACKPLANE PRE-DRILLED

*2 PRE-CUT COPPER SIDE LIPS 

*PRE-FOLDED ELEMENT WIRE

*15" SPOOL OF HIGH QUALITY ELECTRICAL SOLDER

* N CONNECTOR- PANEL MOUNT

*OPTIONAL ELEMENT SUPPORT POSTS

 

 

 

 

       OK FIRST WE SOLDERED ON THE SIDE LIPS(THIS IS OPTIONAL, BUT HEY THEY ARE INCLUDED SO...)  

OK AFTER BOTH SIDES ARE ATTACHED, GO AHEAD AND FLIP THE COMPLETED BACKPLANE OVER SO ITS RESTING ON THE SIDELIPS.

 

OK NOW SET THE N-CONNECTOR IN PLACE IN THE PRE-DRILLED HOLE AND SOLDER AROUND THE EDGES.

 

OK NOW FLIP IT BACK OVER TO EXPOSE THE CENTER PIN. WHAT WE NEED TO DO NOW IS ATTATCH THE COPPER RISER PIECES. ONE WILL BE INSERTED INTO THE BRASS CENTER PIN, THE OTHER WE SEATED IN THE OPENING IN BETWEEN THE N-CONNECTOR AND THE BACK PLAN. WE FOUND THAT USING A CLAMP TO HOLD THE COPPER RISERS WORKED WELL WHILE WE WERE SOLDERING THEM IN.

OK NEXT IS THE TRICKY PART YOU NEED TO PLACE THE PREFOLDED ELEMENT BETWEEN THE RISERS AS SHOWN. YOU CAN SEE WE USED SPACERS UNDERNEATH THE ELEMENT TO KEEP IT WHERE WE WANTED IT AT ABOUT 15-18 MM AWAY FROM BACKPLANE. THEN SOLDER THE ELEMENT TO THE RISERS, CAREFUL HERE THOUGH NOT TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE RISERS WITH SOLDER.

OK CLIP OFF THE EXCESS LENGTH LEFTOVER FROM THE RISERS.

 

 OK LAST STEP, AND ITS OPTIONAL, IF YOU WANT TO STIFFEN THE ELEMENT A BIT, YOU CAN DRILL A COUPLE OF SMALL HOLES AND INSTALL THE SUPPORTS(WE DONT DO THIS EXCEPT ON OUR DOUBLE BIQUADS, BUT HE Y ITS INLUDED WITH THE KIT)

 

DONE!!!
