Nebojsa Kovacevic has done an excellent job of presenting the advantages and disadvantages of the "classic" Windom antenna.  Nebojsa takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and use of this multiband, off-center fed dipole antenna.  One of the downsides of the classic Windom antenna is the length required for proper operation. In this video, Nebojsa has sufficient space to cover at least six amateur radio bands.  Although his design doesn't require an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), it may be a good idea to use one to keep SWR low and reduce RF on the antenna feed line.
