  Back in the days when men were men and ham radio operators were kids, there 
was a company that sold verticles-Gotham.  I've alway wondered what the deal 
with the Gotham antenna was all about.  All I had to go on was old QST's from 
the 50's and since I had no money in the 60's I could never afford a commercial 
  I've been pondering building a verticle using parts from the hardware store 
that could be used on 80 meters.  Like using a loading coil at the base of the 
antenna.  I am sure that this has been done before, but as I was thinking about 
it....the Gotham antenna company came to mind.
  Is this what they did with their 80 meter verticle...use some sort of loading

have any Common Sense - get some and use it.  If you can't find any common
