Hi Guys:
I am interested in building a rotatable dipole similar to the cushcraft
D3 for installation at my QTH.  I do not care if it is actually built
out of tubing, or made from PVC with a wire radiator inside, (Actually
it would be easier for me to do it this way).  While I am interested in
obtaining the antenna, I am also interested in the design process, as
well as the construction of the traps etc. I am also interested in
modeling said antenna using MMANA, more to learn how to model the traps
and the multi band characteristics than from any need to actually model
it. Any insight that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
