20 meter vertical half-wave dipole with inverted-vee lower elements.

I ran across this fascinating antenna article in the 14 September 2023 issue of "Amateur Radio Daily."

Author Tom Pierce (K8EBR) discusses the theory, construction, testing, and use of this easily-made dipole antenna.

"Thanks to Tom Pierce K8EBR for submitting his write-up of a 20 meter vertical half-wave dipole. Tom describes an outstanding antenna for DX primarily because it is an efficient radiator, it exhibits a true 50 ohm input impedance, and it has an almost ideal horizontal toroid low angle radiation pattern."
