2001 Elecraft EC1 Design Contest Entry

The following is an overview of my entry to the Elecraft EC1 design contest held in December 2001.  It is a wideband antenna system analyzer using parts from an old VCR.  This design is completely theoretical!  As you were not required to develop something that actually worked.  Though, I did try to design something that could quite easily be made and it should, in fact, work.

The diagrams where made in PostScript using Xcircuit and converted into the final PDF format using Ghostscript.  The html2ps program was also used to convert the HTML main page into PostScript.

Here are the actual files:

Here is the script to convert everything into a PDF file:

html2ps -f sample-1 < main.html > main.ps
gs -q -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sPAPERSIZE=a3 -sOutputFile="output.pdf" "main.ps" "elecraft_layout.ps" "elecraft_drill.ps" "elecraft_internal.ps" "elecraft_antenna_analyzer-1.ps"

and the sample html2ps config file.

The final result is available here.  (25k PDF)
