Finally got my OCF Dipole antenna up this afternoon and managed not to drop anything on my head. (BTW, extending an old galvanized steel mast by hand is a real pain!) On top of the mast is a 2m/70cm copper pipe J pole and a couple feet below that is the apex for the OCF Dipole I made based on measurements of the 6m-40m dipole by NI4L. One side is 23', the other side is 45'. I added a little extra to each end to allow for trimming if needed. Here is the average SWR across each band as assessed by an MFJ antenna analyer: 6m-3.0 10m-2.8 12m-3.1 15m-12 17m-10 20m-2 30m-6 40m-2 60m-1.8 For reference I got a reading of 1.0SWR at 5.1Mhz if that helps in assisting with the question of trim or leave it alone. So given the above readings and knowing that I will be using an external antenna tuner, should I leave it alone or try cutting and see what I end up with? I would just hate to start trimming and then find out I need to add wire. This antenna will be used with an Icom IC-706MKII with an external MFJ antenna tuner.
