A Very Clever Way to Build a Moxon for 17 and 20 meters

Jim AB9CN sent us Dan Zimmerman N3OX's page in response to my plea for help in SolderSmoke #227.   I think this is a very clever and attractive way to cover both bands with a single Moxon.  


Of course there are other ways to do this -- other listeners wrote in with confirmation that it is indeed possible to nest a 17 meter element inside a 20 meter Moxon (as is done routinely with Hex beams), but this requires a lot of cut-and-try tuning of both antennas.  More in this in future posts.  Thanks Jim, and thanks to all who wrote in. 

I kind of like the N3OX approach.  I think his design makes it more of a workbench electronic project, as opposed to a mere wire and coax antenna project. But hey, that's just me.
