Comment: Here's a handy calculator for radio amateurs who build their own antennas.  Dipoles and Inverted Vees are simple, basic antennas that work well if you design them correctly.  This article explains the theory and simple math equations that will give you the proper element lengths for these antennas. Of course, your final design will be affected by several factors: As you may already know, no two antenna installations are alike or identical in many ways, even when using identical antennas and each the same height above ground. The surroundings, height above ground, the ground conductivity, and many other factors can detune most any antenna. Even the length, diameter of wire used, and type of feedline can be a factor to some extent. Using larger conductor diame
