Hmmm..another variation on the question. It seems one ought to be able to
run two inverted L's from the same feedline, using the same radial field
(common radial plate). Fanning them out from the base up to the tie point
and separating them a foot or two at the top end might work? Same principle
as a "fan" dipole for 80/40, no?
In my situation, I could run the horizontal portion of the 80 and 160
sections in opposite directions, feeding them both at a common base and
