Cutting down antennas
« on: July 24, 2017, 11:35:13 AM »

I'm building a small wing and I've got a few aomway antennas knocking about but they're all longer and heavier than would be ideal.  Can I just cut them down and resolder a connector on or does the length of the coaxial cable actually matter in some way?

Ideally the coaxial length should be in multiples of the used wavelength but the difference will give minimal impact.

Cool, ta.  It's only for a tiny 500mm wing for bashing round a field so less than optimal should be fine.
