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 .
