I took down the alpha delta dx-dd and the homebrew G5RV, and put
up an 80 and 40 meter dipole fed with the same coax.
Keeping them from twisting up was a chore, what with them getting
snagged in the smaller trees on the way up.
Anyway, I got it up and put the 756 pro into it, and tuned
across 80 and 40 meters, resonance was at 3750 and 7176, about
1.2 to 1 swr, and broad banded...
So I cut a foot off each end of each dipole, and got
3887 and 7500!
Quite a jump from 7176 to 7500!
Tomorrow I will lower it and solder on some pig tails to
the 40 meter section that I can trim without redoing the
Seems to work well, on receive anyway, and I will like
changing bands without changing antenna's or using a tuner.
The 80 meter section goes through the trees and bends down
a little, but I used insulated wire.
