Hi All

How does a vertical antenna fed with twin lead work?  I remember years ago, 
there used to be an all band antenna in the ARRL antenna book that had a 30 
foot vertical section and a 30 foot radial.  This antenna was fed with open 

If you put up a 60 foot vertical with a bunch of radials, and feed it with 
twinlead, is it going to work.  Would the pattern be the same as a vertical 
fed with coax and matching networks--such as a 60 foot vertical on 20 with a 
matching network.  73
