For use in the CW-band. SWR 1:1.0
10 db/Horisontal, Reff: 0 db
Marker: 14.0 MHZ (Center off the screen)
"Pick": 14.350 MHz
All over the band SWR better than 1.2

Conclution:

After test and trying to improve the antenna, a HIGAIN tribander came to me, and then the experiment was ending.

Most of the data was as fine as promished, but I think the antenna is to week to mount in tower for long term use.
