A ham friend in coastal southern California area who is setting up a station
with a 50 ft towr and 10 ft mast wants to put a 40 mtr rotatable dipole
at top of mast at 60 ft level )
Budget and tower loading constraints won't allow a 2 el shorty forty Yagi.
I would like to hear from current and previous Force 12 EF-140
40 mtr Rotatable Dipole owners ( This is the longer 44 ft linear loaded
Would like to know if it held up under high wind condx - say,
occasional storms up to 50 MPH winds with gusts spiking to 70 very
No Ice ever.
If yours broke, where did it break and did you repair it and sleeve that
If you were to buy a new one, would you calculate weakest point and
sleeve it and
where might that point be or just put it up as is from factory.
Also, is there a better choice currently on the market for a 40 meter
under $300 ?
