WONDERFUL EASY TO BUILD AND A WORK HORSE  Time owned: more than 12 months
THIS 20 METER DOUBLE EXTENDED ZEPP IS A WONDERFUL ANTENNA.
I HAVE BUILT ANTENNAS FOR THE 20 YRS I HAVE BEEN A HAM RADIO OPERATOR.
AFTER MAKING GOOD INSULATORS FOR THE CENTER AND ENDS, I STARTED THE JOB. I TOOK 85 FEET OF STRANDED 12 AWG WIRE AND CUT IT IN THE MIDDLE.
NEXT CONNECTED THE 300 OHM LADDERLLINE TO THE MID POINT AND WAS FINISHED.
IT MAY SEEM FAST BUT IT IS BUILT WITH QUALITY.
I HAD SOME GENTLEMAN PLACE IT UP AT THE 70 FOOT LEVEL BETWEEN TWO OAK TREES.
I USED MY ELECRAFT K2/100 AS MY TEST TRANSCEIVER ON BOTH SSB AND CW. THE TUNERS I USED WERE MADE BY MFJ ,ELECRAFT AND LDG. ALL OF THESE TUNERS COULD MATCH THIS ANTENNA PERFECTLY FROM 40-6M I WAS AMAZED ON 20 METERS THAT IF I COULD HEAR THEM I COULD ALSO WORK THEM. I MOVED TO FOURTY AND AM HAVING THE SAME SUCCESS. IT PLAYS WELL WITH GAIN FROM 20M -6M. IT DOES OUT PERFORM A DIPOLE FOR 40M AND 30M. THIS WAS DONE LOCAL AS WELL WITH DX STATIONS. THIS ANTENNA IS THE CATS MEOW ON 10 METERS. ITS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING ON 10M. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INTERST IN THIS DOUBLE EXTENDED ZEPP,PLEASE SEND A E-MAIL TO n4ued@arrl.net. Thanks Chuck
