We have a small club that runs 2A with a GOTA station. We run one phone and one CW station on dipoles strung end-to-end in trees. Ends are separated by 30-40 ft. GOTA runs a 43 ft vertical with an SG

Unless the ferrite material is porous such that water can penetrate the surface, I don't understand their disintegration. I thought they were essentially like glass. If they aren't, and if water can

At our club we make certain that our dipoles are strung end-to-end at nearly the same height. We also make liberal use of common mode chokes on both ends the the transmission lines for each station.

I'll bear witness to the "good connectors, properly installed" aspect of Jim's post. At this year's field day, the GOTA station was running a 43 ft vertical with an SGC 237 remote tuner about 200 ft

This is what I do most of the time. I have a modest BX tower (HDBX48) and it is very uncomfortable to climb because of the X-bracing. In some instances, even if I climb it, I can't get to what I need

Rod's idea is by far the best. Slopers are weird creatures. While you can broadband antennas by making the elements with a large diameter (as in a cage) the mechanical complexity isn't worth it. If t

The T2X clamp is made (inexplicably) for 2 1/16 mast. So, you need a 1/32 shim. I went to a hobby shop and purchased some 1/32 aluminum sheet, used it as a shim, and have been delighted ever since. T
