Same here, concerning the theory. I would like to apply the principle
to a multi-band dipole for 40 and 80 meters. I have applied my very very
limited modeling skills to the problem, and thus far have come up empty.
And, I really don't understand the ARRL writing on the subject. All notes
(reading this L.B.?) on the subject will be most appreciated!
