I finally decided to toss the old tribander and buy a C-3E. I'm praying
that Tom gets it to me in time for SS SSB. I'll have it at the top of the
mast at about 85'.
I was driving home tonight from dinner and realized that for the 10 meter
contest, I could throw together a 2 or 3 element 10 meter monobander and
mount it at the bottom of the mast, say 71'. 14' of separation isn't really
enough, but it will be worth modeling.
But - will it work? I don't have a Stackmatch, so I'd have to feed them
with 1/4 wave phasing lines. About all I really understand about stacking
is that it works much better with identical antennas :-) Does anyone have
any thoughts on whether I can stack a beta matched 3 element monobander with
a C-3E in this manner and get it to work? I'd appreciate any comments or
