Hi Bill,

This topic has been discussed before and the simple answer is that you can
mount the dipole on the same boom as the 402CD if you want. There will be
very little or no interaction.

A friend of mine put a D3W on a 10/15/20M yagi between the driven element
and the reflector. He's had it for years and it works great. Good luck!

What kind of opinion s there about mounting a D3W 5 feet under a 402cd. The
402cd is about 5 feet above the top of the tower and can't go any higher. I
can mount the D3W paralell to the elements or run it with the boom. I know a
yagi would be better but I am out of tower space except for this area. I did
at one time have a 40 rotatible dipole under a 5 el tribander running with
the boom about 7 feet below it with no ill effects...any thoughts on this.
thanks Bill, AI3Q _______________________________________________
