    Yup. I about went bonkers reading old material recently (memories flooding back: antenna name connected, now).

    What says CB Radio with more elan?

    I’m not the guy to qualify it, but, some things hit the target dead-center.

    The .64 Wavelength Antenna.
    (That turned into an enjoyable search phrase)

    Can we just call it "close enough" to call it a 1/3-wave? (n)

    That would be 2/3 wave because it is bigger than 1/2.

    Just put a beam up if you want more gain.
