[TowerTalk] Folded dipole

I have a folded dipole up for 80m with a shorter coupled resonator (dipole) inside it to improve 
2:1 SWR bandwidth to the full band.

(so it looks like 3 wires)

Fed with ladderline. 6:1 current balun close to the shack.

In hindsight, I wish I would have put another folded dipole inside the folded dipole as the 
coupled resonator. That would have been cool to try, and I think would have gotten me better 
impedance match across the band.
