Having looked at the Array Solutions website, and not being smart enough to put
together, how does the ZeroFive work?
It looks like a single continuous radiator -- great for 40, 80 and 160,
probably 20 as well. But it seems
to me that on 15 and 10, it's a tad long, particularly the 43-footer. It seems
that on the various bands,
matching transformer or not (it says it's a fixed 4:1 un-un), the base
impedance would be all over the
Thanks for any explanation.

with that. I really appreciate all the help. Here's the plan...43' Zero Five
for DX (with 60 120' radials OH
YEAH) , possibly an inverted "L" for 160 DX/Ragchew...and maybe a few inverted
for stateside 300-1000miles out. I think that sounds like a plan for now.
