This calculator is used to determine the length of each element of the flower pot antenna.
That includes the upper radiator, lower radiator, also the length of the cable that will be wound on the PVC pipe.
Here, we do not count the number of turns, because it will vary depending on the diameter of the PVC pipe used to wind the cable.
We calculate the length of the cable to be coiled, then we will get a number of turns after the cable is wound on the PVC pipe.
