Hello Tower Talkians,
I'm searching for information on the effects of offset of vertically
polarized antennas away from the tower. Is there a generally accepted
distance (offset) properly used when placing antennas in a side mounted
fashion? 1/4 wave length? 1/2 wavelength? Anything but an even or odd
multiple of 1/4 or 1/2? I'm primarily concerned with antennas for 10 meters
through 23cm, of the typical Comet, Diamond, Cushcraft, etc variety. What
distance minimizes the effect of the tower? What distance maximizes the effect?
Please share your responses with the list, unless you know this is an
over-raised question on the reflector.
