An end fed zepp is kinda like a J-pole stretchd out straight. That's why a
certain length feedline works best. 73
What about an end fed Zepp? Fed with open wire. I have read that it thinks
there is an immaginary 1/4 wave section where the feeder is terminate at a
dead or insulator point. I know this is a high impedance point on a zepp.
A half wave vertical would need no radials on that resonant frequency.
