Hello all,
I recently aquired a quarter wave vertical for 80 meters. It´s a 33 ft 
aluminium mast with a capacity hat designed by EA5JK. It has such a kind of 
loading coil. Yesterday at the radio club someone told me to put a stub formed 
by 40 ft or so of coax line at the feedpoint. He said that would help me to 
prevent the static but this stub would put the antenna in shortcut as it would 
connect in any way the radial system with the copper core of the coax line to 
the radio. It doesn´t convince me at all. Just wondering if any of the low 
banders here have added any stub to their verticals and how you did it. Thanks 
a lot. 73s
BTW: lot of snow in norther spain today. Prop is as bad as the weather....
