Subject: Re: [TowerTalk] Cage Dipole Project Question
If I am not wrong in The Antenna Compendium vol. I or vol. II, there is a wide
bandwidth dipole made with only two wires spaced about 6 feet for 160m, wires
meet at the ends on each half of the antenna. The author says it spans 1.8-2.0
MHz under 2:1 SWR. A scaled model for 3.75 MHz is under 2:1 for 3.5-4.0 MHz.
## why not just stagger tune the 2 x wires..and don't join the far ends ?
You will get 2 x swr dips with this setup.
## it's not a cage... just 2 x parallel dipoles, each cut for a slightly diff
freq. If you use big wire , like 10 ga... it will
be very broadbanded.
later... Jim VE7RF
