I actually had one of those up for a while. I had a ~70 foot wire from
grounded to the top of the tower at about 50 feet, and 2 54' wires at about
the 20 foot level, fed with coax with the shield grounded at that point.
It was really broadbanded and I could cover just about the whole 80 meter
band with it. According to the writeup, it was supposed to have some

dipole. I finally took it down. But as they say, YMMV. 73
