Basic VHF and UHF Fundamentals Antennas are a very important component of communication systems. By definition, an antenna is a device used to transform an RF signal, traveling on a conductor, into an electromagnetic wave in free space. Antennas demonstrate a property known as reciprocity, which means that an antenna will maintain the same characteristics regardless if it is transmitting or receiving. Most antennas are resonant devices, which operate efficiently over a relatively narrow frequency band. An antenna must be tuned to the same frequency band of the radio system to which it is connected, otherwise the reception and the transmission will be impaired. When a signal is fed into an antenna, the antenna will emit radiation distributed in space in a certain way. A graphical representation of the relative distribution of the radiated power in space is called a radiation pattern.

In this series of videos, I will be focusing on how to get started in doing ham radio VHF/UHF Weak Signal work. VHF/UHF and microwave weak signal work to me is very exciting yet the most challenging work among all the ham radio activities. To be able to work on these frequencies not only requires a lot of knowledge, experiment and techniques but also requires a certain level of abilities to make your own equipment. This video is just to show beginners on how to get on the most popular frequencies 144mhz and 432mhz. With readily available equipment. Hope you enjoy this video. And I'll see you on the air!

VHF vs UHF - What's the difference We often get calls pertaining to Two-Way radios and our asked what is the difference between UHF ( Ultra High Frequency ) and VHF ( Very High Frequency ), well in today's video we hope we can help clarify and explain the difference between these two radio frequencies. More or less just a small increase of electromagnetic waves but also the length and duration of the signal. I've taken the liberty of providing a variety of other links below that might help you to further understanding this topic.

In this video i test VHF TV ANTENNA TESTING. This little VHF TV antenna to test and see how good it works. Watch this video and find out how. The antenna best suited for your location that truly receives both VHF and UHF signals is the HD antenna. notice the longer elements (rods) protruding from the HD antenna boom? There are cut to length to receive the VHF frequency wave pattern. The four shorter flat plates in front of the long rods is all that's needed for good UHF signal reception. That's why any antenna smaller than the size of the HD antenna will quickly begin to loose the ability to receive the VHF TV signals. This is also true of set top antennas. The reason rabbit ear antennas have the longer rods that stick up like rabbit ears is to receive the VHF TV signals.

This is a simple demonstration how to make cellphone signal detector circuit using RF transistors BFG-591 that could detect 4G LTE mobile phone signal within frequency bands (VHF UHF) up to 6 Ghz. Below are the list of components required to make the circuit. 100 Ohm, 10 KOhm, 47 KOhm - Resistors 10 KOhm - Variable Resistor BFG591 (UHF 6 Ghz Frequency RF Transistor) Blue LED 10 pF - Ceramic Capacitor 10 Cm - Antenna CR2032 (3 Volt) Battery There are few things that you need to understand about the circuit. 1. First - use high frequency RF transistors and in this tutorial we are using BFG591 UHF transistors that could cover up to 6 Ghz 2. Second the potentiometer or variable resistor is used to adjust the intensity or sensitivity of the circuit 3. Finally circuit capture very short range - and if you want to have long range perhaps Germanium Diodes or RF schottky diode can be used at the antenna level to capture the smallest of signal from the surrounding environment before it is amplified by the transistor. Or using power amplifier circuit also can help it capture longer range signal. Hope this video tutorial guide is helpful.

You'll be able to walk or drive around and have instant feedback on if your mobile signal is being received at home or in a car. Don't be afraid to experiment with values for the resistor and capacitor if it doesn't trigger with your transceiver or you want to alter the timing. Eg the 1k resistor can be as high as 10k and the 10 uF can be as high as 100 uF.

Many of us invested in outdoor antennas prior to the DTV transition. Prior to the transition, the consensus was that all DTV was to be transmited on UHF only, so UHF antennas became popular. Shortly prior to transition, it was announced that high VHF (7-13) will continue to operate, UHF antennas may have problems recieving those High vhf channels because the smaller UHF dipoles is not tuned to VHF. The new crop of outdoor antennas has both UHF and VHF driven elements. If you have a UHF only antenna or a DB4 coat hanger antenna you may find this mod useful. All it takes is the VHF portion of a cheap rabbit ears antenna, i bougth mine at the dollar store, some scrap wire and some zip ties.

Ultra high frequency (UHF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies in the range between 300 MHz and 3 GHz, also known as the decimetre band as the wavelengths range from one meter to one decimeter. Radio waves with frequencies above the UHF band fall into the SHF (super-high frequency) or microwave frequency range. Lower frequency signals fall into the VHF (very high frequency) or lower bands. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. They are used for television broadcasting, cell phones, satellite communication including GPS, personal radio services including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, walkie-talkies, cordless phones, and numerous other applications. The IEEE defines the UHF radar band as frequencies between 300 MHz and 1 GHz. Two other IEEE radar bands overlap the ITU UHF band: the L band between 1 and 2 GHz and the S band between 2 and 4 GHz. Radio waves in the UHF band travel almost entirely by line-of-sight propagation (LOS) and ground reflection; there is very little reflection from the ionosphere (skywave propagation), or ground wave. They are blocked by hills and cannot travel far beyond the horizon, but can penetrate foliage and buildings for indoor reception. Since the wavelengths of UHF waves are comparable to the size of buildings, trees, vehicles and other common objects, reflection and diffraction from these objects can cause multipath propagation, especially in built-up urban areas. Atmospheric moisture reduces, or attenuates, the strength of UHF signals over long distances, and the attenuation increases with frequency. UHF TV signals are generally more degraded by moisture than lower bands, such as VHF TV signals. Occasionally when conditions are right, UHF radio waves can travel long distances by tropospheric ducting as the atmosphere warms and cools throughout the day. The length of an antenna is related to the length of the radio waves used. The UHF antenna is stubby and short; at UHF frequencies a quarter-wave monopole, the most common omnidirectional antenna is between 2.5 and 25 cm long for example. The short wavelengths make the VHF and UHF bands the first bands at which practical transmitting antennas are small enough to mount on handheld devices, thus these frequencies are used for portable wireless devices. UHF is widely used in cordless telephones, cell phones, walkie-talkies and other two-way radio systems from short range up to the visual horizon, about 40 miles (64 km). Their transmissions do not travel far, allowing frequency reuse. Public safety, business communications and personal radio services such as GMRS, PMR446, and UHF CB are often found on UHF frequencies as well as IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs ("Wi-Fi"). The widely adapted GSM and UMTS cellular networks use UHF cellular frequencies. Radio repeaters are used to retransmit UHF signals when a distance greater than the line of sight is required. Very high frequency (VHF) is the ITU designation for the range of radio frequency electromagnetic waves (radio waves) from 30 MHz to 300 MHz, with corresponding wavelengths of ten to one meters. Frequencies immediately below VHF are denoted high frequency (HF), and the next higher frequencies are known as ultra high frequency (UHF). Common uses for VHF are FM radio broadcasting, television broadcasting, two way land mobile radio systems (emergency, business, private use and military), long range data communication up to several tens of kilometres with radio modems, amateur radio, and marine communications. Air traffic control communications and air navigation systems (e.g. VOR & ILS) work at distances of 100 kilometres or more to aircraft at cruising altitude. VHF was used for analog television stations in the US, and continues to be used for digital television as well as in Europe but in the latter only Band III is used even though originally Band I was planned to be used. Some older DVB-T receivers included channels E2 to E4 but newer ones only go down to channel E5. VHF propagation characteristics are suited for short-distance terrestrial communication, with a range generally somewhat farther than line-of-sight from the transmitter (see formula below). VHF waves are restricted to the local radio horizon less than 100 miles. VHF is less affected by atmospheric noise and interference from electrical equipment than lower frequencies. While it is blocked by land features such as hills and mountains, it is less affected by buildings and can be received indoors, although multipath television reception due to reflection from buildings can be a problem in urban areas. Unlike high frequencies (HF), the ionosphere does not usually reflect VHF waves (called skywave propagation). VHF waves can be aided by tropospheric ducting.

In this video I take a RCA TVPRAMP1R Amplifier for a 60 mile test and review.The RCA TVPRAMP1R TV antenna is as good of booster as any you can buy. The RCA TVPRAMP1R preamp is one of the few preamps available with separate or combined VHF UHF inputs. The power supply is 9V and the preamp draws 68ma. 1 Full band gain measurement. The UHF gain is 2-3 dB higher than claimed. 2 UHF gain to 1000 MHz. I wanted to see how badly a nearby cell phone tower might affect the preamp. The gain is 20 dB up to 1000 MHz. 3 An expanded look at VHF and the FM trap. With the FM trap switched out the gain is flat from low to high VHF. 4 Isolation. This is referenced to 0 dB and shows how much signal leaks through the preamp with the power off. Strong signals, especially on VHF will still be received even with no power applied. 5 Noise Figure UHF. This is better than most preamps. 6 Noise Figure high VHF. Good enough for most situations. 7 Noise Figure low VHF. Better than required since the environmental noise will be higher than the noise figure. 8 Return Loss for low, high and UHF combination input. The markers show the lowest return loss highest SWR for each band. I converted those to SWR. 9 Return Loss for the separate VHF input. The markers show the lowest return loss highest SWR for the low and high VHF bands. I converted those to SWR. 10 Return Loss for the output port. The markers show the lowest return loss highest SWR for each band. I converted those to SWR. This is much better than I've seen on other preamps.

So I remembered that I have a SDR RTL USB dongle that I can use for a receiver .. and all I would need, due to its lack of sensitivity, is a preamp and a filter, Thanks to Minicircuits I have both .. You'll see both in the video The tested amplifier is a Minicircuits ZX60-P103LN+ Please remember all I intended to test was the weak signal sensitivity of this particular device. Wasnt concerned with, nor can I measure ( yet ) things like SWR and return loss.

I was cleaning my room and discovered this old school band separator and decided to explain about its purpose. Band separator was popular during the analog days because using a VHF antenna to receive UHF signals may cause ghosting. Band separator solves this problem by using two different dedicated antennas for VHF & UHF. In Europe after analog shut down, all DTV are in UHF which makes band separator obsolete. Even in US where both VHF & UHF bands are still use in DTV, many antennas can receive both VHF and UHF with good result which makes band separator less important unless if you are in a location where VHF transmitters are in different location than UHF and each receiving antennas must face in different direction then band separation still helps even on DTV.

I used a MFJ-226 and was able to see the SWR change in real time as I adjusted the small screw. I was able to get the antenna down to 1.24, but when I added the clip for a ground plane it dropped all the way down to 1.19. Again simple to trim if you have the proper tools. The SWR at 144.100mhz was 1.45 and at 148.000mhz it was 1.50. It fell to 1.19 at 146.675mhz. I had a hard time trying to figure out the way to use the ground plane. I found it to be effective if you tighten the fitting on the hook to keep it in place. Look at the pictures. When you use the ground clip, be sure it is perpendicular to your whip.

Other free resources: https://www.intercomsonline.com/2-Way-Radio-Range-How-Far-Can-Two-Way-Radios-Communicate-s/136.htm https://www.intercomsonline.com/two-way-radio-book-a/180.htm Informs on the factors that affect 2-way radio range and walkie talkie range. Helps you choose the right radio technology for you. The transmitting distance of a two way radio set is an important factor to consider when investing in one. The good news is that they can communicate over a multitude of different ranges depending on the type that is bought, so, with a little research, anyone will almost certainly find one that fits his or her needs. The first thing to understand about two way radio range is that most of the commercially available ones operate on frequencies that travel exclusively in straight lines. This means that one will get different results depending on the area in which it is used. Large, metallic objects will block the radio's signal, although other things like walls will not affect it. The frequency may also bounce off of things like trees or buildings, so maximum range is greatly influenced by its environment. Now, assuming that the radios are operating in a wide, open space, the true maximum two-way radio range is calculated by factoring in the curvature of the earth. Because the radio's signal travels in a straight line and the earth is curved, eventually the radio's signal will travel off into the horizon, through the atmosphere, and right into space. The point at which this happens depends upon the height of the antenna. Raising the height of the antenna would extend the line of sight and thus the maximum range of the radios. If one could position his antenna on top of a mountain, he would greatly increase his transmitting distance. Of course, few people are capable of doing that. Power output is another thing that can affect two way radio range. If a radio is not powerful enough, it will cut down on the maximum range determined from the information in the last paragraph. The more power (in watts) a radio has, the farther its transmitting distance. However if the radio is battery powered, those extra watts will run down the charge quickly, so be careful! The last major factor in two way radio range is frequency. The two most popular frequencies for this application are VHF and UHF with neither being inherently better or worse. VHF has a very low frequency and can thus transmit radio waves over longer distances, however, UHF may be better in more crowded areas because it can pass through metal buildings more easily. With all of these thoughts in mind, it is easier to decide on the technology one needs to use two-way radio.
