Re: give the newbie the full story on ELK and ARROWplease

The Elk appears to be a log periodic.
Anybody tried building a pair of these, orthoganally mounted on a common 
boom, and phased to give circular polarisation?
Is it possible to build a wideband (to cover 2 and 70) phasing harness 
or device even?
