I live in southern Oregon on a level 2.4 acre lot. Have quite a few trees in
the 70 to 80 foot high range. They include ponderosa and sugar pine, white
pine and Douglas firs. Am considering a tower for a yagi or quad and as a
support for wire antennas and am wondering how tall the tower would need to be
to avoid serious absorption of RF.
Soil here is full of fist-sized rocks with clay ... and dries out in the hot
Also, a few miles away is a mid-sized mountain which is east of my site. I
used a topo map to determine that the top of the mountain forms an angle about
15 degrees above the horizon. Is this high enough to be a concern?
Thanks for your input.
