I'm not sure if this question is appropriate for this forum but....
even though the model looks great for the 17.5 % feed point, I have
never had any luck in actual practice getting it to work with an
equilateral triangle on 40 meters.   The top was up 52 feet.  It
always works best feed in the corner.

Anyone else had this experience??
