For long haul DX, in general the higher the better....taking in  
consideration feedline losses etc. If you have time & tower room, sometime  in 
future you might want to invest in an antenna at the 35-50 foot level for  high 
angle stuff. ( You would be surprised how susceptible 50 Mhz is to angle  
fluctuations during openings and the ability to switch back and forth pays  
dividends )

All HF  work has been completed on my new station.  Now for 6   meters.

I have a homebrewed clone of a 7 el KLM.  I can put it at  almost any  
height from 1 to 199 feet on my rotating tower.   Being in FL there really  
is no 
major concern with the terrain  although I do sit a bit of a rise in  

Since I'm a rookie to 6, what would be the  recommendations as to what  
height to put this antenna?
