10 wavelengths is considered the point at which interaction is
Related: Remember, for those who have not lived through sunspots
before, on 10 meters, as is often the case when the sunspots are active,
very low antennas will work the best over long paths as well as short
ones. Low meaning 20 - 30 feet above ground. You need both high and
low antennas on 10 meters, and don't "fix" them. You will need to
rotate them and switch between the high and low ones to find out which
works best at any given moment. "you never know"
