      I don't think the inductor has to be at the very bottom.

      I have always used a LC (inductor/capacitor parallel) matching network for half wave monoband antennas.

      I am thinking you want to make this antennaFor a monoband 1/2 wave antenna both a capacitor and an inductor.

      That design here is commonly called a station master.
      Possibly not the most efficient of radiators but seems to hold up well in our windy conditions.
      Appreciate any thoughts and advice you may have on the subject.

      HI Homer, I would like to build a half wave vertical. The one with the radiator fed with a tapped coil. How much radiator is below the tap in point? Does it matter? It would be much stronger if the aluminium radiator was inserted through to the bottom of the "C" clamp inside the PVC section which I think also works as a capacitor.
      Thanks,
      Dave

    I used CB radio briefly in the 70's, and began to seriously use CB in 1993. Due to circumstances I dropped out for 6 yrs. Returned Jan '09.
