I have spent a week trying to get an inverted L to radiate but I am just about to give up. Its tunes up well on all bands inc 160m and its 38m long. At first I grounded it via 4 copper rod spread out in a line...gets out but poorly...unhooked them and tried a 38mt counterpoint same very little getting out...still tunes well...its fed via 16mts of coax. So looks like I will have ditch the inverted L and forget about using 160m for now and make do with 80m...which is my second fav band after 160m. So I am now considering an off-center fed windom style dipole 40mtrs long for 80-10m. I have no experience with this type of antenna and would love to hear your views on how well they perform. I have a choice of bare copper wire for the elements or polyweave....my gut instinct is toward bare copper. So guys how does an off-center dipole perform say on 40m with a center-fed dipole cut for 40m...I have one of those up now and it does a good job....and polyweave or bare copper? Nick.
