Post T2FD configuration
I'm looking at a T2FD, but the ones i've saw are far too long to fit in flat or inverted v configuration. Would i be able to have the centre point say at the bottom of the garden and the 2 legs running in a v configuration towards the house. Something like the pic below (or the other way round). Not sure if anyone has tried this, but would be interested to know the results if you have.

What are the lengths.? Where is the feed point.? What bands?
You could always close it and run it as a delta loop depend on the answers to above.

The closer the arms come to each other, the more they will cancel each other out, until they ultimately become twin feeder.
As much as I like T2FDs, that garden looks more like a job for Les ONX's inverted 'L' (+top band mod) to me. :)

+1 for inverted L but I'd say use a SGC230 at the end of it.

Thanks gents, appreciate the suggestions.
I'll have a read about the inverted L and will probably give it a go.

+1 for the inverted L, works a treat on 80-6mtrs.

Only HF wire left up and connected now, Doublet removed, vertical hanging on, but not connected.
Len GM0ONX, inverted L beat the lot.
