I just looked in my files, and the subject of the upcoming column in Low
Down is the subject above, which just happens to be a topic recently
discussed on the list.

So I broke my policy of not putting on line articles in this series until
after publication.  I thought by putting it on line now, it might give the
interested a feel for antenna patterns for low dipoles and some types of
vertical antennas.  Since I only have 5 pages per issue in small formet,
the discussion is not complete.  It is confined to 40 meters, but can be
translated to ant band by looking at the fractions of a wavelength column
in tables.  Also, it does not show a comparision of horizontal dipoles at
heights in increments of 1/8 wl, although the tables give some relevant
data.  Nonetheless, it might give just enough of a feel for the subject to
let folks draw good inferences about cases not covered.

The item is No. 8 under the Low Down/CQC articles listed in the
miscellaneous collection on the main page.

Hope it is useful.
