Here we must be hitting on discrepancies between theory (modeling programs,
some books) and reality.
Using "crummy" 2 el. parasitic verticals and dysfunctional 3 el. triangular
array sitting on the beach I came very close to W4ZV 10m score who was using
optimized 3 stack KLM of 6 el. (Both in NC) (yea, yea, I am 5x times better
operator, etc. :-)
I can "cost effective" forest of verticals for the price of 3 stack :-)
(And don't need towers :-)
You ought to try it to believe it!
