Aramid does not stretch. I have never noticed fiberglass to stretch either, except perhaps when I am cornering at the limit in my Corvette. :) 73, Keith NM5G --Original Message-- From: towertalk-boun

Fiberglass may be sensitive to UV, but I doubt it affects strength significantly in tower guying applications. However, I also prefer the light weight and easy storage of Philly and would not conside

One could think of an object here on Earth as an antenna receiving energy from the sun. Since the sun is transmitting about 4 &times; 10**26 watts, it is not difficult to understand why that Al plate

I need some help with phasing two antennas in a stack. The antennas are Force12 C-3 and C-4XL. The C-4XL is essentially a C-3 with 2-el added for 40M. Since element spacing and feed method (current b

All, I think I have found a workable solution. My initial plan to add a delay line to the C-4XL will likely eliminate the phase difference. The delay line will be 70 inches (about 6 feet), which is 8

gain is pointed. And for that phase errors do make a difference. Whether it's important is another story. You bet it's important for DX contacts. 73, Keith NM5G ______________________________________

I would expect problems with the SteppIR at only 5 feet separation. My experience is that 10 feet is usually required to reduce mutual impedance to a tolerable level. 73, Keith NM5G I am getting read
