Prepping for SS.  What do people think about the usefulness of 40 and
80-meter inverted vees at about 50 feet?  I had them at 90 feet (apex) last
year, and felt that the 80-meter IV was a great domestic antenna but the 40
was a tad too high.  Now I have a rotary dipole at 100 feet on 40, and I'm
thinking of moving both IVs down to 50 feet or so.  too low?  Would 65 feet
be better?  Or where? I'm also putting up a parasitic array for 80 that
models to be a killer on lower-angle stuff, so the 80 capability from the
inverted vee would be mainly to fill the domestic gaps.
