Has anyone experimented with feeding both a horizontally polarized and
vertically polarized antenna simultaneously on HF? Such as, feeding a
polarized yagi and a vertical on 20, 15, or 10 meters?
I did this years ago on 2-meters and the results were tremendous. It greatly
reduced QSB on distant stations and seemed to increase overall ground-wave
coverage. Since HF signals are getting bounced off the e-layer perhaps there
would be less or no advantage. On the other hand, both antennas would have
different take-off angles... which could help when contesting?
How would recommend we feed this system: in phase, out-of-phase, no phase!
All idears welcomed! I'd like to try this in CQWW in a couple weeks.
