I'd suggest looking into BEAM solar engines. The concept is similar to what you've outlined above but less complex. You use a small solar cell to charge a capacitor. When the capacitor reaches a certain voltage, a transistor dumps the charge through a motor. In the original case, the motor moved a tiny robot a few inches. In your case it could rotate your ...


As you move away from the ideal "zero gap", the input/output impedance to/from the dipole antenna changes from the standard value of 73 Ω + j42.5 Ω to something different and less documented. Hence, we have a rule of thumb that says if the gap is small (one-two-hundredth) of the dipole length then the impedance quoted above is reliable.
