Speaking from limited experience with 1/4 wave slopers, feedpoint
but seems to have great amounts of reactance. If you can live with
2:1 vswr, just cut to frequency by formula and run with it. If you look
at it with one of the modern day "Antenna Analyzers", it'll drive you
You'll cut and prune until the antenna no longer works.
