I had a 160m inverted V which due to trees etc. had one leg very close to a
guy wire. No matter what I did, the SWR min was about 4:1.|
I suspect coupling to the guy wire, but importantly IT WORKED OK. I worked plenty of DX with my 4:1 SWR and friendly ACOM amp which was happy to still put put a KW or so.
As a side note on 80m, my first 80m ant was an inverted Vee at about 30 feet. Working EU was close to impossible. I raised it to 40 feet and EU was very very easy to work (obviously from the East Coast - hi!)
