After much experimentation, finally, the antenna was developed with good performance, however, it was difficult to explain why the performance was so good, or how it is worked basically at that time. So it was named Hentenna , "Hen" means "strange" in Japanese.
The antenna has good performance and many advantages and it has become very popular in Japan. Many JA stations make it and enjoy it at home or in the field. Some Japanese 6m beacon stations are using the Hentenna antenna.
