Hi, Jeff --
I suggest you drop me an SASE and I'll send you a reprint of my recent
3 part series on rotators that appeared in my "Up The Tower" column in CQ
Contest magazine. All of your questions are answered in it.
SASE to TOWER TECH, Box 572, Woodinville, WA, 98072.
BTW, where did the web site info appear? QTH.com or what?
