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
