    The maximum usable roof width is about 32 feet (10 meter)
    I have a 1:1 balun that I need for a dipole. But I need a shortened one to fit my roof.So my friends I need a used and tested "shortened dipole" or similar projects for 40m band. Thanx so much..

    I think the shortest 40 meter dipole I've ever seen was two mobile 40 meter antennas mounted butt to butt. How'z that?

    40 meter trap dipole

    and go from there. The smallest traditional "dipole" for 40 meters will be somewhere around 66 feet long; you can't change physics because you don't have enough room.
