Mesh curtain antenna

Very, very quiet antenna, but it has been up less than 24 hours.
Feed is on one side only with the ground connection about 2 inches
away on the same side with the connections at the bottom some what
towards the center of the curtain length ways.
So he is center feeding a large curtain with a "_2 inch_" wide feed.
Yup, that WILL very definitely be quiet. I hope the tuner has a lot of
loss in the way before the "antenna" (chortle) to dissipate the 99.999%
of the power fed to the short at the end.
Basically it is a long one wall
Faraday shield but without a drain ground on the front side.
It's not a Faraday shield if it's not completely surrounding something.
I'd suggest a smaller one. Of tinfoil. Around your head. It won't
help, but it would be amusing.
