Hi all, firstly... things are good in the Canadian North. There is only 16" 
of snow in the yard to melt before antenna season starts and the female half 
of the Northern human species have once again shed their parkas 8)   It will 
very soon be project time !
        Query :  I spend nights on 80m and enjoy tri band DX in the days. I 
have exactly enough room to hang a full wave 80m skywire loop around the 
complete perimeter of my back yard.It should suit my purposes nicely. Now 
the tricky part : I have purchased a TH7DX and I want to errect it and my 
55' crank up. With the surrounding 80m loop the question is, where to put 
the tower? The loop height can be up to 50' max and the TH7 will ideally be 
at 60' or so.What will happen to either antenna, if I put the tower inside 
the loop (centered) and perhaps crank it right down to 30' at night to use 
the loop? What about say, the loop at 40' and the TH7 at 60' for DX during 
the day?  Is there a decent way to get both of these antennas in the same 
space? Go ahead, be short and brutal if it's a real can of worms... A fellow 
can't have everything . The only other options I see are : Tower just 
outside the loop (about 5'and inconvenient) or tower in the front yard with 
associated alimony payments 8(
As always I await the great input this list is known for.
