Hi to All.

Last November's flood damage here on my land on Wilkins Brook has been finally cleared away. After looking over the area I now have to use..... I'm considering putting-up another Sterba Curtain for possibly 20 or maybe 15 meters. I have the room to build a 8 element array on 20....maybe a 12 element on 15 meters.

I was wondering IF...IF anyone out there has ever built a Sterba Curtain using 5/8 wavelength elements(43 feet on 20 meters) instead of the 34 feet long half wavelength elements.

IF so, what was their impressions were...

what the radiation patterns might be...

the gain

And most importantly of all....... Is it worth it to go to the 5/8 wavelength over the half wavelength typical configurations for a regular Sterba Curtain...

??

Any and All thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Best regards and many 72/73.
