Our new "thickened" GP for 40 meter band

This special Ground Plane antenna consists of eight wires vertical element 20 cm diameter and 12 m. long, capacitor for reactive compensation in series with the vertical element; 4 wires horizontally symmetrical resonant counterpoises 3 m. above ground. So that Elks can freely pass under it :-) SWR less than 1:1.1 in the range 7.0 to 7.3 MHz. Thanks to RA1AMO for help.
