Roger, you better keep your head down. I'm not sure who it will be (the G5RV
crowd or the "open wire is perfect" crowd), but the
chances of you meeting a bad ending from this statement is high! You are
talking about the sacred cows here. ha ha.

### I have yet to see or hear a G5RV that actually works worth a
damn.......esp on 80m. Now if you stuck it up 100'...
and at least made it rotatable, then you would be way ahead. A dipole
that's up high is pretty good. It's 14 db better if you can
rotate it ! Or at least try and get 2 of em up....at right angles....
sorta like a 'T' [get em far apart]. If you look at the various patterns
of these ants on each band... you can see at a glance, that there is a lot of
nulls. With any fixed wire ant, you are bound to have nulls in
the desired directions.
