That is correct. Each leg is aprox. 8.3'..
I did check to see where the Length calculation came from, there are a few sites one in-particular that calculates Dipole length at 468/MHz and then suggests deducting an additional 5% for an inverted V design.. Here is the link..http://http://www.hamuniverse.com/dipivcal.html Another suggests 464/MHz, all very interesting, they all state that this gets you in the ball park and that they need to be tuned to the specific frequency... I was looking at an MFJ-269 analyzer to help with antenna setup, do you have any experience with these? Thanks again!!
