I can't picture your physical environment, but I have a hard time
seeing how this
antenna would be less cumbersome than a simple 23' elevated
vertical. Or, a
If you have a tree... make a dipole and haul it up by one end.
If you don't... get yourself a hy-gain vertical antenna base, and
put 23' of tubing
on it... put it on a pushup mast and simply droop down 2, 3 or 4
at 45 degrees.
In my case, I used a 50' radio shack pushup mast, snaked into a maple
with the vertical on top, and insulated radials sloping down through
In this location, I've had a dualband 40/30 vertical dipole hung in
an oak tree.
Had to fold over the top 10' of the 40m section. But it played
Unless you're truly space limited, I'd put up a full sized structure.
