budget DX'ers antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
A little more gain and a lot more directivity than the classic tribander.

The 1970's 204BA came close spaced. I replaced the boom with 36 feet of aluminum tubing transforming it into a poor ham's Long John.

Retuned and feed with a balum, it was a great 20 meter antenna.

I still have the antenna and hope to have a lot large enough for it again. This time I'll put a 10/15 dual bander and a 2 meter yagi above it.
