Of course, it is compromise tuning.
However such tuning was satisfied for me. If you want tune the
antenna only for 20,- 15,- 12,- 10 and
6 meter Bands you may reach low SWR (no more 1.3:1) for each band...
The antenna was tested in the
Air. Obtained result was not bad for the fence antenna. 6 meter
band is alive for me. I always could receive local beacon VA3UBL/B.
It is near 40 km from me. I received some beacons from USA. There
were beacons at distance up to 2000 km.
Antenna was compared on HF bands
30,- 20,-17,- 15,- 12 and 10 meter with
Beverage Antenna (Test A-B). The Low Profile antenna loses to
Beverage Antenna at receiving mode 1- 2 S on the S- scale of transceiver
However, at testing the antenna
at transmitting mode I often have received for the Low Profile
Antenna the same report as for Beverage Antenna. Low Profile antenna
often helped me receive some station that I could not hear with
my Beverage Antenna. It should be difference in DD of the antennas.
