This is the next antenna I'm building. The only piece I need is the variable cap. I plan on making the frame from PVC that fits in my tripod and making it remote tune-able

I'm grabbing this now as we all know how the life expectancy of a tripod website. Remember geocities,

----------------------------->8 Clipped from website 8<-----------------------------

**UPDATE**: Math from 66Pacific which I will try first before committing to the original design I found. I'll make a second loop to get me 80m and if it fails then build another 40m and sell it as such.
