I won the ARRL SS three times with a tri-bander at 48 feet and wires.  Once
I got my 72 foot tower I found that hams at 40 to 50 feet would beat me out
to Central America.  That is why
multi ops have stacks!  N4RJ found that 25 or 30 feet was right for his low
beam on 10 (and this was a killer to South America).
