since several weeks I use the EWE antenna. After reading the relevant
articles from Floyd Koontz and John Devoldere I learned a lot about this
well running antenna system. However I would like to know the exact meaning
of the three letters EWE. I couldn't find anywhere an explanation.

I would be happy, if there is someone in the list, who is able to explain
the implication of these three letters "EWE". Thanks in advance.
