I seem to have collected three Tri-Band HF beams.
They are generic trapped beams, e.g. Mosley, HyGain,
I am considering mounting them all on my Rohn 25 tower
eliminating the need for a rotator. (I will also
have a couple of doublet wire antennas, a vertical,
a sloper, and a long-wire to supplement the beams.)
I could either mount them back-to-back on the three
opposite faces of the tower, offset far enough so
that there is at least 8-10 inches of separation
between the tips of the reflector elements, OR
I could stack them on the mast separated enough to
try and minimize interaction.
The tower is likely to be approx. 60 feet.
(I understand that the back-to-back method would
require extra supports for the beam masts from
above and below.)
Any experience on the list with either of these
