The wire on this side of the house was 10.7 meters long and supported about 2.5 meters above the ground, and is sloping to the east.
The other wire is sloping to the west and supported by the rain gutter on the other side of the house.
This wire also had a length of 10.7 meters, and is folded back over a length of about 4 meters. The antenna is symmetrical and is fed via a 300 ohm ribbon.
Later I realized that I could make the wire longer, than a quarter of a wave length on 40 m. So in later versions of my inverted Vee, I used a length of 12 m for each of the wires. Nowadays, I use flexible wire.
