Today's antenna was an 88' doublet fed with el-cheapo 300-ohm twinlead (the same stuff that is used with VHF/UHF TV antennas). My rarely used (because it is rarely needed) 28' Jackite collapsible fiberglass pole supports the center. The pole was designed to hold wind socks up in the air, but they work really well for portable antenna masts. The antenna is running north-south so its major lobe on 20/30/40m is broadside toward the east-west. There is a steep downslope to the east, and the antenna performed very well.
