Bobtail Curtain Antenna. Post 2033.

Here's a great antenna for the ARRL Field Day.  Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) does a good job of explaining the theory, construction, and use of this bidirectional, monoband broadside array for the Amateur/Ham Radio HF bands.

This antenna is by no means a simple affair--you may need help in erecting this array.  You'll find the effort expended in making this antenna well worth your time.  I remember using a 10 meter Sterba Curtain several years ago at a local DX-pedition and found the performance excellent.  With HF propagation now favoring the lower HF bands (160-80-40 meters), you may find the classic "Sterba Curtain" a welcome addition to your antenna "farm."
Thanks for joining us today.
