Hello Andr=E9,exactly this was my intention, but actually the diameter of=
 the helical is
to small (11 cm).
I think it should have 30 or better 50 cm. But so far I have no idea how =
I could build
such a monster. Next spring I will try the same antenna (same height and =
top load) but
without helix - only a straight wire. Then we will see which one works be=
tter. Another
design I would like to try is a sort of inverted cloth hanger antenna.
