Gets too complicated for me, anyway.``` ```This is the point at which my eyes usually glaze over. Better Men than I will go further: basically the induced SWR means the power doesn't get split 50/50 - it becomes 60/40 or 70/30 or whatever - not 50/50. Anyhow, if you plugged in some uneven amounts of energy at your sources in your computer model, you will see a degradation of the pattern - like you are experiencing in real life.``` ```That´s why the Lewallen W7EL method should be used, as I4JMY pointed out a while ago. ``` de SM2EKM _______________________________________________ See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more.
