Since I am heading back to the mainland (FL) I am now thinking about a new
Tower 1...rotating Rohn 65...200 ft
4/4 M2 40 Yagis 200/100' (total 26 sq ft)
3 KT36XAs 90/60/30' (total 31.5 sq ft)
2 A3WSs 80/40' (total 8.2 sq ft)
Tower 2...rotating Rohn 65...200 ft
4 5el M2 20m Yagis 200/150/100/50 (total 42 sq ft)
4 7el M2 10m Yagis 120/90/60/30 (total 24 sq ft)
Tower 3...rotating Rohn 55...200 ft
4 6el M2 15m Yagis 150/113/75/37 (total 34 sq ft)
1 3el 30m Yagi 100' (10 sq ft)
2 7el 6m Yagis (7 sq ft)
Any thoughts? Especially interested on the guys who have used 65 before.
I am pretty confident on the 55's ability to handle the load, as I had
about 55 sq ft on the 55 at my old FL QTH and those were on sidemounts which
produced some pretty heavy duty torque in windy condx.
I have run N6BV's program and all looks good for the patterns. Anybody
see any serious interaction on any of these. I know there will be some on
the XA at 90 ft on 15 meters since it is close to the 40 meter Yagi. I had
my XA and the 40 meter Yagi around 12 feet apart in KH6 and saw very little
interaction. Besides, the XA stack is a secondary one for 10-20 meters.
Rotating device will be K0XG stuff. Thoughts on these?
This will be my last setup (said that before) and I want to do it right.
Thanks for the help.
