137MHz "V" Antenna advice needed ...

David Slipper

Hi, I am in the process of making a "horizontal 'V' dipole" antenna for receiving NOAA and have a question about adding a reflector.

It will have 8 elements in the reflector and my questions are :-

1. Do the 8 elements need to be connected to each other ???

2. Does the reflector need to be grounded ??? or perhaps connected to the coax braid in some way ???

I'm a newbie in all this so any advice is welcome.
