There have been a couple of articles in CQ magazine about this antenna 

Does anybody understand how the quarter wave sections of RG8 work ? Does it 
load up the length of the antenna to give it closer resonance to a half 
wave on 80 meters. Does it work any better than a G5RV on 20 meters ?

I am currently making one and will have it up next week - unfortunately do 
not have any accurate method of comparison so no wild claims from me later 
on !

Over the weekend I heard W5GI on 20 meters out here in Indonesia, 5/8 + 
with the linear - still readable when he switched to 100W as a test - he 
was using the aforementioned antenna.
