I have a 50' fiberglass mast with some VHF antennas on it. I'm planning to
take the VHF stuff down and re-purpose the mast for HF. I'd like to try and
make some improvements on 40m to EU (Right now, I use a 1/4 wave vertical with
several hundred radials) - and a sloper seems viable to get some gain and
directivity. (So far, so good...or am I wrong already:))
The basics seem straight forward:
-A dipole sloping at 45 degrees from the mast pointed to EU.
-The coax coming into the center feed point at a 90 degree angle
If I'm reading everything right - the mast must become a parasitic reflector
and some wire introduced to it. How long, what diameter should the wire be?
I'm also curious if anyone else is using a similar arrangement?
Feedback appreciated. Thanks in advance
