Topband: Parallel vertical wires
Sat, 07 Apr 2001 15:59:30 -0400
Doug and Steve,
I'm running a 66 foot wire vertical for 80 and a 135 foot inverted-L for 160
(66 feet vertical, 69 feet horizontal), with the wires 6 inches apart, gound
mounted, feed in parallel at the base with a single 50 ohm coax, against a
substantial radial field.
SWR and performance on both wires is excellent. This is just a fan dipole
turned on its side. There is no reason you can't add another wire for 40.
