Geeze, Pat... those plots all show a rather narrow bandwidth on all the
options. What does the modeling program say about the old fashioned
V dipole? How about a sloper like the Alpha Delta DX-B single wire
trapped sloper? (Admittedly the latter gets mixed reviews, but some
credible hams get really good results with it. I get average results with
mine and it is not even on a tower!) How about a sloping dipole?
Delta loop with apex on tower top?
How do these other choices stack up? I am curios because I face
exactly the same dilemma posed on your web page.
