Ford - careful. I understand there is a push by some to create a new
category for people who use monster antennas as opposed to those use
something less. ;-)
"Comparing a station with a beam and a dipole is very comparable to a
6 monobanders. In each case, only one antenna gets used at a time."
In all seriousness, I would second the comments of K1TTT & K5ZD. There
is more to their success than just their geographic location. If you can
afford a couple of towers with monoband yagis, you'll be ahead of the game.
I would also suggest picking up a copy of the ARRL Antenna Book. There's
some great analysis software and other propagation/antenna data. You can
look at the data for W0 land and get a good idea of what antennas and
heights are best suited for your location based on the geographical areas
you want to target. Good luck!
