I use partial tower sections because there is a ready free supply from hams who have had towers collapse. I also would feel more comfortable at the top of the first few sections before the first set

I guess I'm just lucky. I bought the Corps of Engineers map for my location and the highrise buildings in downtown Houston are about 20 miles due north. On most days I can see them to aim the antenna

ground rods on a tower base that is in a good bit of concrete is wasted effort? The tower base and concrete should dissipate most of a lightning strike? Chuck W5PR __________________________________

I would do that here, but I worry that a lightning strike would take out the submersible pump. Chuck W5PR _______________________________________________ _____________________________________________

I think there is some disagreement about the necessity to slope the ends to the ground as I used to do. There was a discussion on here about it. The intent of sloping then wire was to minimize the ve

I have used trees and, like Cort, I used rebar stuck in the ground with 10 foot pvc pipe slipped over it. I notched the top for the wire and taped above the wire to keep it from coming out. (It needs

The noise is mostly locally produced, therefore the lower the antenna, the less noise pickup. The distant signal is coming from a slightly higher angle and, while it will be a smaller amplitude for a

I found that my Beverages at 10 feet high work quite well on 160 and even better on 80. My BOG efforts - not so good. Even with an amplifier, I think a BOG might not be as good as something like a K9

Part of the problem with comparisons of low band receiving antennas made in various locations is that the composition of the ground under the antenna makes a huge difference. Chuck W5PR On Mon, Feb 2

If I were to put a Beverage above one of my barbed wire fences, I would put it at 10 feet to, hopefully, minimize the effect of the fence on the Beverage. Chuck W5PR _________________________________
