    Windmill/fan tutorial!

    The long awaited tutorial for my windmill and fan as well as stronger build method is here!

    Awful lot of work in there. Hard part was to build models of every type and readjust measurements according the new build method.

    May the builds begin!

    Brilliant tutorial, will definitely be making a few of these soon. Out of interest (and because I've got some spare), how would using MIG wire of 1.2mm diameter affect the performance of these antennas?

    Thanks for your work.

    Great tutorial. Is there a reason for no 5.8GHz measurements? Also, how do these perform paired with either a Skew or CL, i.e skew on the RX and a windmill on the TX ?

    Bigger wire will shift frequency up, add 1% for your wire.

    The new build technique is less forgiving with precision, at 5.8ghz it's a shot in the dark. My original technique is more advised, that's still how I make my 5.8ghz fan. I'll have to update the original tutorial or make a mod to this one...
    Anyway, they work excellent with the SPW or CL as long as the polarization is respected (RHCP >> RHCP) I would suggest to put mine on the Rx side because they have higher axial ratio.
