Bob, do you need to guy this "Hytower look-a-like", or does it seem to be
pretty sturdy with the winds you get there? I know that the HyGain HyTower
doesn't need guying.

>> Hi Everyone,
>> I have a few questions, yes, it's ME again. I have the opportunity to buy
>> 45' of Rohn 20 for 150.00...
>> First question,will 25G fit 20G??
>> Second,I am thinking about a full size 75m vertical out of it...how
>> difficult would that be to do? Could I get a 20' "mast" out of the to make

>> Also...how CHEAPLY/easily can insulators be purchased for the legs? I've

>> $400.00, and that KILLS the point of building this thing right now to be
>> honest. (DO I EVEN HAVE TO INSULATE IT?? I have a friend who built a NON
>> insulated 160m Vertical.) PROS, CONS???
>> Third Question: Can I make it multi-banded? Like just use a tuner on
>> All your thoughts and experience would be great!!
