So... When I do the math, taking into consideration velocity, I get a different answer than I was expecting. And, when I run the math the other way, I get a different number. I don't know what I could be doing different, but something isn't adding up. 300 / 27.805MHz = 10.76m 10.76m * 0.84/v my answer is 9.045m Looking good so far? 9.045 * .25WL = 2.621m for a quarter wave. 2.621m * 39.37" = 89.028" I know that for a dipole you have to have a matching leg. That said, though I trimmed my piece of wire to where I thought it would tune in, giving myself a bit of extra, it's way, way off. I don't give myself a lot of extra wire, but I do give myself a few extra inches (I'm sure you boys can relate - HAHAHA - Someone has to have a sense of humor here! ) That said... I have been doing this for a little bit now, but never encountered this type of conundrum.
