G4ZU's 'Jungle Job' antenna
This is an antenna I'd like to experiment with but haven't got around to it. It's basically a two element beam. The reflector is straight while the drive element is V-shaped. This is potentially a handy way of getting a bit of gain on bands like 10 and 15 metres. They seem to have been most described by European hams.

If you've made one please let me know how it worked.
