I know a dipole fed with open wire line and a balanced tuna is a good setup, but at my location it would be a bit hard to bring in OWL and have a tuna handy. Plus, every time you change bands you have to tune, even to listen. Some modern gear makes it a snap to switch between bands, or you can have transmitters tuned up for various bands that makes changing bands very quick and easy. I have limited space and now limited supports for antenna's and have an 80 meter dipole over the house, right over all the TV and internet stuff and not that high up. 80 meter high power operation takes that out. I have an Alpha Delta LB plus that actually works ok, its great 40 and up as its a full size fan dipole there, for 80 and 160 its loaded and the loading coils act like traps. Because of the coils, it does change swr in the rain, and has a narrow bandwidth like any loaded antenna. But that antenna is off to one side of the house and does not take out the TV and internet. I don't do 160 as the antenna is really short and would not work very well, so I think I will remove that part and the 80 meter coil part, and just add an 80 meter dipole as long as I have room for and make some small loading coils at the mid points to get the swr low. 80, 40, 20, 10 and I might add a 6 meter leg. Low swr means low loss on the coax (65 feet) and no tuna needed with the tube rigs. The Alpha Delta antenna's are made with number 12 or 14 solid insulated copper wire with plastic spacers and copper wire twisted around the antenna legs and the spacers. That seems to work well, unlike some of the ones I have made they do not tangle up in the wind. The full size legs seem to change very little in the rain, the coils do. In stock form, the coils they provide do not hold up for a long time, UV gets to the enameled wire in the coils and it degrades, but the antenna does work well when new and allows all bands in a limited space. It happens that the current Alpha Delta lb plus I have up is very low SWR on 80 and 40 meters where I operate and I have been able to put 300 watts into it on 80 meters and not take out the cable stuff. I plan on removing the 160 and 80 meter coils and adding as much of an 80 meter leg as I have room for to improve the efficiency. If making a fan dipole, solid wire seems to work much better, less tangles. I have access to free wire at work (scrap) but its all stranded, no good for fan dipoles.
