There was a design that W6SAI published in the May 1989 Ham Radio that might
be just what the doctor ordered. The vertical was installed at WD0P and was
a two wire vertical 45 feet tall with a long resonate wire attached to the
top. The length of the wire was about 85 feet for 1.85Mhz.
If you can find a copy of the Mag its on page 77.
Actually the resonate wire could make it work on 80 and 160.
The design is similar to a 85 foot version that was in print about the same
time. I used this in the late 80's and it was a killer. Mike, K4PI
described this version at a SEDXC Meeting as a way to get members on 160.
The main requirement (as always ) is a good radial system!
