Biconical anteeny calculator wanted"


Does anyone have a Calculator for Biconical type antenna I have looked on line for over year and have never found one for this type of wide bandwidth antenna.

The Biconical seems to hold the best(smallest) Physical size & widest Bandwidth of any antenna design & reasonable gain of any antenna type I have investigated to date.

I could just build something that looks like a biconical but that would be a stab in the dark that would produce no specific performance expectations and would amount to nothing more than wasting of construction materials & guessing.

I have built Discone's & quad helix type with good results but i really want to give Biconical type a try.

I just can't find a calculator or even formulas for that antenna type strange.

any help is appreciated.
