I use eight beverages all coming to a common point at one of my towers
the beverages are selectable from a remote switch and are available at
4 operating positions. the beverages are all terminated and run under
various antennas--- none of them are verticals---i have never thought
there was any change in the transmit antennas when i rolled out the
bevs. ( i do this every year after the last mowing of the yard)
so, my advice is put them out and enjoy some better listening..
