A good explanation of the legendary W3EDP antenna from Charles (W6JJZ). The original design was submitted by Yardley Beers (W3AWH/W0JF), who was encouraged to describe the antenna by his good friend H. J. Siegal (W3EDP). The result of that collaboration was published in the March 1936 edition of "QST."  The antenna uses an 84-foot/25.6 meter radiating element and a 17-foot/5.18 meter wire, loosely referred to as a "counterpoise."  The W3EDP operates on the same general principal as the J Pole Antenna commonly used on the amateur radio 2 meter and 70 cm bands.
