I have a long non-resonant dipole fed with 300 ohm twin line. I want to construct my own feed line using 14 gauge stranded wire. I could set the distance between the conductors from one inch to three inches, using spreaders I have. Measured at the 1:1 balun, impedance of the current feed line and antenna ranges from 20 to 1200 ohms (4-10 MHz), with most points below 800 ohms. What would be the ideal distance between the conductors for the new line? Thanks for any help.
