After install my 40m Delta loop and how low noise, broadband was, my mind was
fixed to get one for 80m, a few months later build it and installed , the SWR
was not soo bad using a 4:1 balun in that time, because the 4:1 balun works
great in the 40m Delta, maybe for that old installation and all the guy wires
around , but in the 80m my bad experience was the OVERLOAD of the Broadcast
that was something in my old dipole never happen, with no BCB filter and a
IC-706 was terrible, QUIT and back to my dipole with the Cheap voltage
balun that eat the Broadcast, more than 10 years since, but NOW i'm thinking
very seriously to install it again and give it the try horizontal Pol , 1/4
CATV hardline and some ferrites for choke., think the SWR will be much better
now with the tower using Kevlar for guys.
the bottom section longer than the other 2, works for me .
