I have called my inverted vee and flat top center fed tuned antennas 
"doublets" for 40 years now.  Maybe it is a regional thing.  Until Tom 
mentioned it, I always heard "double Zepp" used when the antenna was a 
full wave each side of center.  True north?  Surely even  razor beams 
are not that narrow.....73 bob de w9ge
