While this antenna from K7PP will prove to be a bit challenging for a Field Day operation, it could be ideal for a home site with plenty of room. Fan dipoles using a common feed point attached to several band specific antennas have been popular for decades. The elimination of an antenna "tuner" could be an advantage for those who prefer separate dipoles but can only use one feed line.
K7PP designed this antenna to cover 80, 40, and 20 meters with one feed line. Ten meter operation is possible using a harmonic of the 80 meter band.
