KK4OBI Bent Dipoles

This is the 4NEC2 antenna bend model for: Standard Horizontal V-Dipoles

To use this model:
4NEC2 is an NEC2, NEC4, Windows based antenna modeler and optimizer by Arie Voors.
It is available free of charge at:

CM Standardized V-Dipole, 1-feed model for comparison studies.
CM #14 AWG. Feed point at 1/2 wavelength over ground at 28.4 mc. 
CM Fixed ratio creates only 1 segment in center at feed point.
CM For V-dipole analysis at any angle, arms up-or-down
