Vertical Fan Dipole, ya right. This was just a cleaver way to get a FREE advertisement for your "Amazon store, or visit my author page: http://amazon.com/author/owh. Volume 7 is out now". Some of us write how-to's to help HAMdom not make a profit off HAMs. You can find my many antenna articles for free on many HAM bogs (HamUniverse.com/etc.) including my FREE YGroups 'RDF-USA' or 'HAM-SATs' - Files area. Now insert some meaningful information into your QRZ ad then tell all that an Inverted V multi-band Fan Dipole with near 102 degrees leg separation has a reactance of near 50 ohms which is great for direct single point connection to RG-8x. Some of us have been using multi-band fans for many decades - like mine 60/40/20/17/10m. The issue in making it is keeping the wires equidistant via spreaders (another free how-to article I posted many years ago). My main goal for my designed multi-band inverted V was durability, simplicity, and usability. Plus the low cost was great too going back to simplicity. These 12 gauge wires have ~1" of ice on each demonstrating durability. These dipoles are not vertical nor is the radiation pattern vertical either.
