40M 2L 50 ohm impedance? with reasonable gain/f/b/swr bandwidth? I don't
think so, or I couldn't do it
(with my boom length and full length elements)
Am I missing something?
Actually I did create one by accident. If you off-center feed the DE,
you can get a 50 ohm match without too much loss in the other metrics.
I thought that was interesting. I saw someone proposed that elsewhere,
and it actually does work. It would be possible mechanically, but there
is a loss in gain.
Does anyone have a 40M 2L with 50 ohm input, with no matching
components? Well I guess a moxon does it, and maybe some dual-driven
things? what am I missing? I thought a simple 40M2L can't, as far as I
