Re: A question about 75 Ohm connectors

I think I was unclear: One element would immediately at the feedline
tee, the other element would be 1/4 wavelength of coax away from that

   Actually, Doug, I don't think that's what you want.  If you do that, the
   elements will be in phase.  You want them 90 degrees out of phase which will
   not be the case with what you explain below.

   For 90 degrees phase shift, you need the 75 Ohm cable, but I am not sure if
   the length of 1/4 wave or half wave.  I was just reading this
   somewhere....yes, in the satellite experimenters handbook.  I can look it up
   later tonight when I get home if someone doesn't beat me to it!
