I'm getting ready for the VHF contest season, and need to get up a 6m yagi (
a Cushcraft 5 el. on a 12' boom).
My dilemna is where to put it. The choices are:
At 125' (halfway between a 402CD @130, and a 204BA @120')
At 65' below a PRO67B on a ring rotator. This requires rigging a mount off of
the boom of the PRO67.
The 125' level would be easier physically, and I suspect a bit better for F2,
possibly at the expense of Es performance. I am concerned more about the
detrimental effects of the 6m antenna on 20/40. Whaddya think ??
