hey gang! I'm slowly recovering from some tower issues (bad storm,
tower/antenna damage etc) and am rebuilding my tower stuff.
Anyway have just finished getting my 64' T-500 Trylon freestanding tower
back up properly with a couple of new sections.
My previous setup was this:
24' mast, down about 8' or so (I think) in the tower to the rotator. Had a
Force 12 5BA (20-10 including warc bands) mounted right above
the thrust bearing.
Had an M2 linear loaded 3 ele. 40m monobander about 8 to 10 ft above that
and 5 or 6 foot above that some phased 2m beams.
Had some issues with the 40m beam (operator error in some assembly) and got
that fixed, but a MAJOR pain to get to since it was up on the stack.
Anyway this time around I am just about to get the Force 12 5BA fixed up and
have a M2 four element 40m monobander on order and would REALLY like
to put it right above the thrust bearing for easy access just in case I have
to fix any operator errors :)
I don't think I've seen a 40 on bottom and multibander on top, usually the
other way around. Anyone done it this way and any issues? (besides the
drop in height etc.)
Thanks in advance,
