Decided to experiment with an off center fed 40 meter inverted L dipole. the short side is around 17 feet long and represents the vertical portion of the OCF dipole. My antenna is so low because I do not have room for a much more extensive design. the long side is around 48-49 feet long (I eyeballed it sorry. The antenna is 25%/75%) and I used the balun design posted by PU2YYP on his blog. the SWR is decently low on every resonnant band and the tuner has no issue tuning everywhere 6-40 meters. I consider this very worthwhile to build for a ham with very little space and it is very forgiving if you decide to slope the antenna down or bend the ends a little.
