There are 2 versions of the Battle Creek Special shown – a wire version. which will work out first. The traps are made of coax cable as described by W1FB. The second version is a ‘real’ vertical make of tubes complete with a description of the traps… I hope to unsecret the mystery of the Battle Creek Special and the construction of it.
This antenna is designed for 40, 80 and 160 meters to complement a tri-band beam normally taken on DXpeditions for 10, 15 and 20 meters, so six bands can be worked with only two antennas.
