According to Claude, the folded dipole is made from ladder line, fed with ladder line, and matched with a 4:1 "step down coaxial balun" at the bottom of the transmission line.  The antenna is resonant at 50.4 MHz.  The reported SWR is 1.3 to 1 between 50.0 MHz and 51.0 MHz.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
