I'd like to hear from some of you guys with the monster antennas. I've got
about 3 extra acres here that could hold a monster. Yes, it would be cool
to have a system that reaches to 200' or so, but would it play well?
I've never played a radio with an HF antenna >70 feet or so. What should I
expect at 160'? Oh what the heck, why not 300'? Seriously, I'm looking at
a new tower and am unsure about the "bang for the buck" on a big boy tower.
My gut tells me that a high tower is a handicap on SS and any other domestic
contest. Long haul DX may be different but is it going to make a difference
in my score in ARRL DX, CQWW, etc.?
I'd be interested in any and all informed responses.
