This aerial has been proved to be 2 to 3 S-points quieter than G5RV aerials and others fed with 20m coax cable and/or 300 Ohm ribbon. This version is supplied with 2.5square mm cross sectional area multistrand top wires together with 21 metres of the 100 Ohm twin feeder, though greater lengths can be supplied if required. Otherwise you can use a balanced ATU such as the MFJ or the old KW Z-Match or SEM EZ Tune.
The endorsement attached is typical of users of the LTD80/40m trap dipole. Experience proves it to be typically 2 S-points better on receive and transmit than the comparable G5RV. The Inverted V configuration often has better perfomance day and night than a straight configuration but needs to take into account ground capacitance to the outer sections beyond the traps. Otherwise resonance will be below the 80m band and this is corrected by reducing the outers by about 24 each.
