2 years ago, I put up a 1/4 wave 30 meter sloper on my 75 foot rohn 25 tower 
that has two log periodics on it, one at 75 feet, the other at 42 feet.  The 
sloper is tied at about the 35 foot level, pulled out towards EU.  I'm 
working everything I hear on 30M, and I think the 90 1/4 wave radials for the 
160 meter INv L on the same tower help- I have found the 1/4 sloper to work 
very well, tunes easily, and does not seem bugged by all the antennas on this 
tower-  Amazing to think of  this puny piece of wire working so well- but it 
has a lot of aluminum above it and a lot of radials below it- I sort of doubt 
it would perform the same off a 10 foot mast pipe attached to the house-

is an adventure-
