Hello to the group.
I am considering making a homebrew HyGain HyTower.
My first questions is this:
The stinger at the top is not electrically connected to the top of the tower?
It is insulated and there is a wire that runs from the base to the stinger. In
the manual, it is called the "80 meter wire".
I am wondering why they did this instead of just electrically connecting the
bottom of the stinger direct to the top of the tower.
Does anyone know the answer?
Next question: Has anyone tried to make a 60 meter stub for this antenna?
Last question: Does one really need 3 x 3 x 3 ft of concrete to hold up a
tiltover 100 lb. tower and stinger such as this antenna?
