I wanted suggestions / thoughts about an antenna set up.I
have a Rhombic( pseudo rhombic rather) of 1 wavelength for 20m band
on a 75 ohm feeder. The same feeder feeds a 15m inverted V.
The 15m Inverted V was made by shortening a 20 m inverted V - but
instead of trimming the wires I have coiled the wire into an air
core type former and left it there.
The SWR on both these band sis within limis of under 1:1.2 approx.
On the air tests on both bands proved to be good.( I did have a good
time creating a small pile up on 15m) Im assuming the Loop for 20m is
acting as a reflector for the 15m inverted V..
a.How can I Improve gain for this Loop/Inverted V combo with another reflector ?
b.Assuming that I put in another 40m Inverted V on this set up am I
going to do some thing drastically wrong/wierd ? ( may / may not be
on same feeder )
Thanks in advance,
