Although at first glance this looks like a small "off centre fed" dipole, this is actually a nested Marconi 1/4 wave antenna on the lower HF bands, giving a low angle of radiation and predominantly vertical polarisation, and opposing feed impedance is used to provide automatic band switching without traps.

For years it became my standard quick and dirty install wherever I have moved.

Several Radio Amateurs have built variations of this antenna and have reported excellent performance on 80m with good DX, especially in such a small space.

The 1/2 size G5RV is a farce on the lower HF bands, as are most of the reduced dipole antenna arrangements so I wanted something that was a similar size but truly resonant so losses were kept to a minimum.
