I just had my tree climber back to the acreage and now have two new antenna
supports at 110 feet. The two trees are 130 feet apart. Given the lay of the
land, the new supports are on a north - south alignment -- not ideal, but I
can't find a method of rotating the land just yet. 

I'm looking for suggestions on what might give a little additional gain over
the two existing dipoles I already have in place. The dipoles are at 110
feet and they are at right angles to one another -- so one for lp/sp and the
other for JA and NA.

I have been considering a half-square for the new space -- it will just fit
nicely with the horizontal 1/2 wave section at 123 feet for operation on
75m.  As I continue to do my research, I wonder what other suggestions list
members might offer me. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
