If you design a 40 meter quad, typically you design it for either the phone
or cw band but what if you cut a driven element loop for say 7.025 and
another driven loop on the same set of spreaders cut for 7.25 -- and feed
both of them simultaneously?
Does anyone have any experience doing this or similar?
Will bandwidth be improved? (I recognize that with a single wire loop
a reflector that gain will be compromised at some point...but I'm looking
for a broadband solution with good SWR characteristics across the band and
decent forward gain. I really don't care so much about f/b ratio.
Some of you antenna or modeling experts must have some thoughts ???
