Hi Mike.  I have a couple of trees here in my back yard and I put up an 
inverted "L".  It really works good.  I have about 80 feet vertical and 
45 feet horizontal.  There are about 40 radial from 30 to 130 feet long 
under it.  I don't have a linear for 160, but can work the east coast and 
out to Hawaii easily with it.  They are simple to erect and feed.  Gud 
luck in the test. 73
