What are you using now? For my moneysworth, I'd put up some dipoles -
much more efficient.
BTW, have you considered the Force 12 ZR3? This is a new design that
is basically full-sized vertical dipoles for 10-15-20M that are bent in order
to give them a compact design. No traps so it's over 90% efficient (unlike
trapped verticals), gives you maximum bandwidth (unlike trapped verticals)
and really DOESN'T have to have any radials (unlike trapped verticals). Let
me know if you need a Force 12 catalog. Yes, TOWER TECH is a Force 12
