Eric......check my install on roof: www.k6sdw.org
On 2nd story with mast C3e is above ground about 36' but too close to roof
and stuff beneath roof.....the top antenna is Cushcraft 5-el on 6 meters at
41'....seriously thinking of removing 6-mtr antenna and pushing Force12 up
to top....the tower is a 9' Glenn Martin, very nice construction!!!
I can work Europe on 20-15-10 when band is open but definitely not a BIG GUN
with C3e so low.......do wish I had the bucks to put up 80-90' tower in
Hope this helps......73/ ed
