Actually, the commonly published  gain figure you see for the EDZ is on the 
order of 3 dB. (.64 wavelength each side of center.)

The 1.8 dB gain figure you referred to  is recognized as being the gain of a 
two half waves in phase commonly referred to as a collinear array. This is 
type of dipole is also called the "Franklin Array".........

I am running both antennas here at my EDZ on 40 
and a Franklin Array on 75M.............I have 3 acres here so lotsa' 

Yes, ladder line is the ONLY way to go as far as I am concerned although many 
who own shares of stock in coax companies will disagree..........heh heh



See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
