Who Windom was:
W8JI's info page:
Like any multi-band antenna, there are compromises. SWR, bandwidth,
radiation all vary by frequency.
The tuners in most radios are really "line-flatteners" as has been
explained by others. They do not have enough L and C to tune
ladderline or really "outrageous" mis-matches.
It is hard to beat a ladderline fed dipole antenna....but you need a
tuner to make it work.
