Thanks guys. With any type of v, the SWR just would not get to a point
I wanted... 1.1- 1.3 w/o tuner. So I put the whips in a straight line, re. regular dipole
and its up about 18 feet. Nice thing is it is hand rotatable. Cant wait for some SFI near 160
or so to try it against my resonant Antron, and MFJ 2010 66' OCFD.
Waiting kinda sucks, but makes the planning more fun.... IF the antennas work out.

I am also thinking of a 260 foot OCFD, would the gain on 10, 12, 20 meters increase
due to the added wire, or will the specific wavelength be used and the extra wire just
be wasted by creating heat?

Thanks again!

John
