I am looking at a Cushcraft 416TB circular polarized antenna for UHF terrestrial SSB/CW use.  If I were to remove the one set of elements, and only attach the feedline harness to the one driven element, how bad might it affect the pattern of the antenna and the feedpoint impedance?  Anyone been successful in converting a circularly polarized antenna into just a horizontal polarized one?

How many forums are you planning to post this question on?

He might have better luck on SV9AEU's Stack Exchange site.
