    I found an article about a window antenna written by an English author in either the 60s or the 70s. It looked like the performance was fabulous. So I designed a 3D printed handle and antenna winder that allowed room for the placement of the two ferrite cores. Subsequently I lost the internet reference and the printed article and am completely stymied. I have the two cores I have the antenna material I have the winder but I don't have the information about the number of turns on the course and the exact placement of the connections to the feed line. Anyone have an inkling about that article? I would be eternally grateful.

    That is supposed to be WINDOM. Voice typing did not expect it.

    It wasn't called the FB4?

    FB due to the ferrite beads used.

    One bit of the top may have been 5m and the other bit 15m.

    It is possibly mentioned in one of Pat Hawker's Technical Topics articles.
