In working the NAQP last night, I had quite a few requests to QSY to 160 from
80. On 80 I am using a ~130 foot center fed zepp. Going to 160 only requires
a quick re-tune of the tuner so that's no problem.
Question is, if I were to add to the ends of the antenna 50 feet of wire in a
coil, and have a 10 foot pigtail, would that improve the operations on 160, and
would it make any difference on 80? It is up about 80 feet in a tree so that's
not really very high on 160, but would like something a little better. 73
