Is there a lot of difference between a vertical long wire antenna and a
regular vertical GP?
Last year when camping I used a 65 foot piece of wire up into a tree,
hooked directly to the output of my tuner. I had one long counterpoise
and the tuner connected to a ground that I drove INTO the ground.. It
seemed to work pretty well on all the bands.
Not having any modeling software here, what I was interested in is if
the vertical LW works different than a vertical GP.
Weather's getting nice and getting the itch to get in the camper and do
some camping! 73
