Hi Guys & thanks Steve for Towertalk-
We'd appreciate your thoughts. Our new club station site is limited to a
tower height of 70'. We have two tower options we are considering. Please
advise which of the 2 you like the best for overall stateside and DX work.
Thanks for your assistance!
OPTION 1: Single 70' tower with stacked Tribanders at 40 & 70'. This option
would offer a 3rd take off angle when the Tribanders were fed in phase and up
to 3dB gain.
OPTION 2: Two towers, one at 40' and one at 70' each with a Tribander. The
towers would be separated by a distance of 100'. This option would give
easier flexability for rotating the Tribanders as each would be top mounted
and the option of loading the 2 towers for various bands. Some con's: may
lose the 3 db gain from stacking, and could have possible interaction between
the 2 towers at 100'?
Our group is undecided which route would be the best way to go. Any idears?
