Off Center Fed Dipole (OCF) Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Ymcs2D7ks This is post 2515 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Michael Martens (KB9VBR) for this fascinating video on Off Center Fed (OCF) HF Antennas. Michael built this variant of the classic Windom Antenna for the 2020 ARRL Field Day event.  The original antenna design belongs to Loren Windom (W8GZ), who published his experiments in the September 1929 "QST" Magazine. Here are some comments from Michael: I build an 80 meter off center fed dipole antenna for this year's ARRL Field Day Event.
