If you want to make it really easy, and work good, change it to 2 elements, 
space the elements about 1/4 wave (with split driven element that is) and 
it's 50 ohms.  Feed it with coax and go.  Make a great and simple field day 
antenna.  Oh yes, I know, modeling will show it probably won't work.  I've 
been using that configuration here on 20 and 10 (well, not so much 10 right 
now) for about 5 years and I like it.  Works a lot better than the TH-3 it 
replaced.  73
