Hi Wolfgang,

I remember an article on the Russian Vertical about 20 years ago. I 
recently uncovered a copy but can't find it!

As I recall, it was a wideband design by UA3CR, now a silent key. The 
vertical was like a half of a "boe tie" if you know what I mean.

I'll try to find out where I put it. I also think they didn't use them as a 
single vertical but as an array.
