Opss I made a typo, the top of my parallel dipole is 38 feet up.
It has 3 elements a 16' a 33' and 66' (each side) (befor they were
tuned)all conected to the same feed point with an air wound choke at the
feed point also.
I also use a mfj deluxe versa tuner II .
I also have a vectronics antenna analyzer. I have ordered a coax switch so
that I can switch between the hf rig to the antenna or the antenna and the
analyzer. (I am getting tired of whistling lol )
So I guess my question here is, if I put up a 135' or so, flat top fed with
ladder line would there be much difference between the two? pros and cons?
As for birdies. I never thought of that one. There are 5 computers here and
at least 2 are on at any one time.
