Has anyone had any experience in building the Twinlead folded diplole
antennas listed in the Antenna Handbook? I built the 10 Meter version
 to themeasurements in the book (including the 39pf Silver mica
capacitor) and can't seem to get the SWR down on the antenna. there
is a slight dip at the resonant frequency, but it still isn't below
3:1 ..... I even made a coax coke balun andthat didn't help either.
Any suggestions? I've rechecked all my measurements and all my solder
joints and just wonder what I might try next to get the SWR down to
an acceptably low QRP SWR (1.2:1 or lower)
