Thought I would check out "Towertalk".

I'm planning on only one tower this summer....hope to put up a
1/4-wave 160M vertical built from Rohn 25.  (I found a very good
deal on one Rohn 25 insulated section) thought I would do
the elevated radial thing.  (I've done it for my 80M 4-square, and
it works great there.  I used G-10 fiberglass rod for insulated
bases.)  I have on hand over half of the Rohn 25
sections I need, and I have literally miles of 2100 Philystan I
picked up for pennies when RFE went out of business.

If anyone has built a full-size 1/4-wave Rohn 25 160M vertical,
please email back to me.  I'd like to ask a few questions.

Comments please.

P.S.  Space is no problem.  I have only 6 of my 42 acres planted
with antennas.  I also have a 160M dipole at 140'.
