I built a couple of 2 el beams, one for 20 and one for 10.
I just split the driven element, fed them directly with 50 ohm coax. and
spaced the reflector at a 1/4 wave. It seems to be a good match on both
antennas and the SWR is very low.
I don't have any modeling software here, so what does it say about an
antenna like that? I know the best gain is with a director a lot closer,
but this way I don't need to mess with a gamma or any other kind of match.
I like the KISS method of doing things. 73
