Well guys and gals
I just went thru the numbers on my 4el vee antenna and the mfg. sheets
were nowhere close.  I really think that most mfgs numbers are intended for
sizing.  They only seem to give you enough to make shure your new antenna
can be
turned (and held) by your rotator.  As for my calculations (right or wrong)
I used
the ARRL antenna book for reference.  They may not be 100% correct but it
has to be better than what I could come up with on my own.
