Hi Casey. You will have a great time even if your beam is only 30 or 40
feet. I have a home-brew 3 element yagi for 20 and a home-brew 2 el.
yagi for 15 on a 30 foot tower. I have never had any problems working
anything I can hear. I'm at 297 worked now. I have also won 3 or 4
contests in my section. Higher is better, but go as high as you can and
