I have not been active on the bands lately because I moved at Christmas
time and have
not had a chance to get my antenna's back up yet. Now with gud wx finally
getting here and most
of the new yard work started , I am starting to think abt what the new
system will be.
The one antenna I am having questions abt is for 160 mtrs. I will be
putting up a full size
vertical with Rohn 25 and Philistran, but this is the question:
Do I ground the base and gamma match the feed ?
Do I ground the base and Uni-pole feed the tower ?
Do I use the G-10 insulating material I have and insulate the base and
direct feed the tower ?
My plane for any of these methods is to use buried radials and the tower
a 4-square for 80 mtrs around it. There is a possibility that I could get
away with elevated
radials, but I am not sure abt this yet.
Any input wud be greatly appreciated !!!!!
Tnx's Jim KC8PG
