Would like to see the details on that. If you have a picture, please PM me. Thanks.
and the one I built....http://wireless.gumph.org/articles/homemadeomni.html
The outer braid is a PAIN to work with, so I stripped of the braid, and went to the hobby shop and found a brass tube that fit over the dielectric from a piece of RG8.
You can adjust the number for the freq, propagation delay of the dielectric... 66% 86% or 99% if you are using Belden 9913. Of course, as you know, the lower the percentage, the smaller the antenna. I used 66% for the smaller over all antenna... If I wanted a longer antenna, I would strip off the Belfoil of some 9913.
The hardest part of this project was to get good, clean, ACCURATE cuts of tube! I ended up buying a XACTO HOBBY SAW.
Make a solder jig! I also used 4% silver bearing solder for the strength.
