It's springtime here, that time of year where 6 meters occasionally opens up. And I need a decent 6 meter antenna. I'd love a beam, but I live in an RV and have very limited space. So a dipole it is.
I've long been aware of cage dipoles and their broader bandwidth verses a regular dipole. So I thought up a way to make a simple four wire cage dipole for 50 MHz. Here is the design.

In order to test the increase in bandwidth, I initially just put a singe wire on each leg and swept it with my Blue VNA.
