You absolutely CANNOT model an antenna of this sort with the free
version. Consider that at a minimum, you will have about 140' of
elements. With only 20 segments, you would be looking at the currents
every 7' along the element.

W4RLN's site has a good article on proper segmentation.

Not a blast at terry, who offered to help, but this segmentation issue
has come up before, and people need to understand it.
