In the ARRL Antenna Book, 17th edition, the antenna you are interested is 
explained on pages 4-16 to 4-18.  It is called the K0EOU Broadband Sloper. I 
became interested in it because the author claims that great height is not 
required. I emailed K0EOU and asked a few questions on how it worked and he 
said there was great speculation on how and why the angle of radiation is so 
low.  I will forward my email to Greg and his reply to anyone considering this 

I am still considering it. (translation  = I have not gotten off my lazy butt 
and built one yet)

  In my quest for setting up an antenna on our small plot on the side of a hill 
I came across this interesting looking 80 meter antenna:

  I think the article was published in QST 4/86 page 23 - 25.

  Not having great skill in modelling (only a bit with MMANA which has its 
limitations with ground losses / proximity as I discovered to my horror) I 
wonder if any of the ex[erts have a view on this antenna and have perhaps 
modelled it.
