I am curious about why you are suggesting that one needs NEC 4 software to design a 2 el. duobander.
FWIW I basically took a C-3 and removed the 10M elements, tweaked it with a model in EZnec (NEC 2), built it according to the model. It ended up being resonant exactly where the model predicted with an swr of 1.0 at resonance on 20. However on 15 it ended up with 2.0-1 swr . Maybe I should have used NEC4.
