Inverted V Length Controversy. W9BOQ on 13/2/20
Hello all Hams everywhere,

I would like to settle this once and for all.

Most online inverted V calculators will give you a leg length that is shorter than a dipoles. On 160 meters by several feet. 123' to 117'

Then there are some sites that say longer. They site an error in the ARRL antenna book which remained uncorrected for decades. Apparently since 2003 the handbook now says longer.

Please, let's settle this here and now. ;)
