I'm looking to install an 80m directional array for
the ARRL contest.
I will be operating from a watertower, which is about
130ft high. (see qrz.com F6KCP for a photo.)

If I use slopers , is the 'boom length' from the
middle / feedpoint ?
What will be better than just a 1/2wave sloper but
easy to install and get working ?
