>VE6JY: In my opinion, that low antenna won't add much in a stack 
As Don is a big time contester up north of me, his opinion is
like gold.

Another vote against.

Another vote against. East coast guys can work runs into Europe,
and we don't (read I) even hear them :-(

>N4KG: I'd stay with 2 antennas on a 72 ft tower
Another vote against. 
Am I seeing a pattern here?

As I was just day dreaming about the stack, and don't have 
the second antenna, never mind the third. I think I will just
go back to my original thought about my 5 elem 10 meter
beam at 48 feet, and leave the stack for the next peak.

Thanks all for your help.
