other bands as well. It will tune up on 6 meters with the coil shown, and you may get it to tune up on 2 meters as well, although most of the coil will have to be shorted out and it would be better to use a smaller coil. The radiation pattern will not be a bi-directional "figure 8" (as will be true on the lower frequency bands) but rather a figure 8 plus a number of other lobes, many of which will be highly useful, and tend to give coverage in all directions.

In addition, the antenna can be used as a random length long wire (fed with an L network) on 80 meters and 40 meters so the Mini Vee is actually an all-band antenna. All of tlxis can be done with a somewhat more complicated tuner plus a simple switching arrangement. But that is a story for another time - and perhaps the subject of another article!
