The powers are with us.
I found it at the top of the stack in the second drawer that I opened.
Rolf fed it with 450 Ohm Wireman window line, and used a remote automatic
ATU to match it.
Basically he took an SGC-239 and floated it by mounting it in a plastic box.
He connected the radial side of the openwire to the ground of the tuner.
The vertical side of the openwire simply connected to the asymmetrical
He placed a 1:1 balun directly at the 50 Ohm connection, and then ran
AIRCELL5 coax (similar to LMR-240) to the hotel shack.
I don't think the online translators can do much with PDF files scanned from
I will ask Rolf if he has a Word document of the file.
Then you can cut and paste just the bits you need.

I would love to see that article. Do you recall how he matched it to
the rig? It seems, without deeply thinking about it... that similar
considerations as we have discussed on the OCF dipole and vertical
antenna designs come to mind.
No problem if it is in German. I will figure out how to translate it,
and if I have any questions, I will be seeing my friend Wolfgang
soon... we are both interested in a local contest group. He is a
swell sport on that sort of thing. Also running it through multiple
translation programs will tell me enough.
It would be fun working it out.l
