Hi Steve--

What is your take on the following antenna situation:

I currently use a TH7DX at 50' on Rohn 25.  I have in storage a Rohn
tilt-over tower (68'), an unused Force 12 EF420, and a Big Horn 4 el 15M
delta loop beam (the only one built, I believe, on an 18' boom).

Do you think it is worth the extra hassle of putting up these
monobanders on the tilt-over (when I move) or will it be just about as
good but with less potential trouble to continue using the TH7?  (My
main interests are IOTA and 80M--only need 3 more all time countries and
12 zones plus about 30 countries on 10M to complete 5B DXCC and 5B WAZ.
So I mainly deal with IOTA pileups now which are usually on 20 or 15M.)

I gather that a stack of 2 TH7's would be considerably better that the
single bigger monobanders but I don't think there is room on the
tilt-over for such an arrangement.  Also have considered using a Force
12  4BA above the EF420.  I assume that the tower would support this

What do you suggest?

thanks, Doc  K7SO
