BTW, I would start with at least a 19-1/2" length, if not a bit longer. My actuals ended up shorter so if you just copy them they might be much too short. This is what a 0.4953m long whip over perfect ground shows in NEC. Most of the time the cut charts for 1/4 wavelength whips says 19-3/8", so I'm not sure why I'm ending up shorter.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
