CM Standardized OCF vertical for 2-radial model converted to EFHW with variable bend point and angles
CM #14 AWG. Over Real ground, Element height fixed at 12 meters. Variable feedpoint height.
CM OFC ratio is adjustable based on Length.
CM End-fed so use short counterpoise and small inductance for vhf tuning.
CM Arm ongitude is adjustable 360 degrees around.
CM Arm lattitude is adjustable 360 degrees up an down.
