Would it make any sense to cut one of the bow tie wires to a different 
frequency than the other to get a double tuned circuit type of 
response?  i.e. two SWR minima with a hump in between to increase the 
SWR bandwidth.  I keep meaning to model this but haven't yet got a round 
tuit.  (Somebody actually gave me one once but I lost it.)
