It would be easier to just feed one vertical with a random length of 50
ohm coax and make the other vertical a parasitic reflector.

My first Rodeo on phasing, need confirmation please.
I am working on 2 34' phased verticals spaced 34' for 40 meters
pointing in a
SW ant we call #1
NE ant we call #2
I am wanting ONLY NE direction.
Using my MFJ-259B I have determined the length of coax I have (RG-11)
measure 106.2' to the fault.
Physically measuring the coax it comes to exactly 72'.
Dividing 72/106.2 I get a measured velocity factor of .6779 according
(468/7.150)/2 =32.7' per 1/4 wave
32.7' X 3 = 98.1818
for 3/4 wavelength
98.1818 X .6779 = 66.55'
So this should be the physically measured coax length for the 3/4
going to the #1 vertical.
Then I do the same for a 3/4 coax wavelength from #1 to #2 antenna.
Does that sound right?
