Yes.. It's quick and easy to deploy, works without a ground system, has
a useful amount of low angle, and has a pattern like an inverted L. It's
a good solution for someone who can only use two
dimensions..i.e..height and length. I use a variation by N6LF (from his
http://rudys.typepad.com/ant/files/antenna_vertical_loaded.pdf ). I
can use my farmer neighbour's fence line, but I can't put down a ground
plane, as it would interfere with the agricultural activities.
http://www.iol.ie/~bravo/low_band_antennae.htm I can't use anything
that's wider than the fence, so the "Double L" or Rudy's "H" are ideal
solutions for such circumstances. .
A commercial version of the N6LF "H" antenna is sold by Force 12
