When we started we had a few "must haves", such as it must be small, light in weight, and portable, it had to cover 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, and 10m as a minimum, and it had to be easy to deploy. After today's outing it looks like we have successfully met all those targets. In fact it even tuned up on 17m and 30m.
Here's a diagram of the antenna:

Even with those numbers we were getting a true solid 59 into the southern states and New Brunswick.
Next weekend we will have it on the air again for the W / VE Island QSO Party. Hopefully the propagation numbers will be better than today, and we will have a better idea of what this antenna can really do.
