Welcome to he forum Russel.
Your QRZ page is an interesting read for those who are interested in the upright V antenna. As you, when I decided to make the couple that I did in this thread, I didn't find much info on the net relating to it. I have found it does work well and very practical for small spaces. Unfortunately I cannot keep one up permanently and so most of the time I use my inverted V fan in the loft/attic.
I am not a web page builder aficionado, so not sure I can help resurrect the old web site, but you could possibly post the article as an image or images here on the forum.. or I could if you mail it to me. I don't think there'd be an issue with copyright if the old site was taken down so long ago, especially if we link the original source (admins let me know if it's a no no). My email is ttblood @ hotmail.com (take out the spaces).
Have you by chance tried the V beam idea on 10m as noted through the below link on your QRZ? I might try at some point to see if I can pull in a few African entities, an area which I struggle with..
