Which would be directly in front of it, which is the actually direction he was intending to talk. Not to mention Id have to be proven the swr could actually get that low on such a contraption... And did I mention I seen guys talking off coke cans with a tuner... Worked, for like 1/2 mile of open field... NOT 200 miles.
I've built some crazy antennas, but are based on good theory, but nothing like this... I spend a LOT of time building, trying, tuning, and making new antenna. Love it! Yet I dont think I would have ever considered this one.
WHy I've not gotten around to it. But I said I would, so in time, I will. . .
