Take the connector off and look at the dielectric. Sometimes there will be a trail shorting it out. You may have to cut off an inch and reinstall the connector. I would try this first. Chuck W5PR Sen

You can do that, but you will have to feed the tapered element dimensions into a program to convert into the correct length for the non-tapered element. Chuck W5PR ___________________________________

Maybe I don't understand, but I would think that if you had a tower with an aluminum tube "stinger" on top, this might not work because of the change in percentage of the various diameters. Chuck W5P

But you are only adjusting the smaller diameter tube and not the larger diameter. Afterward, the antenna will have a larger percentage of the large diameter than before. Therefore, it is a different

I agree. But, what was wanted is a formula where only one adjustment was needed. I think that will only work when the entire element is one diameter such as a wire. The ratio will get close, but will

Does that tower have the same dimensions as Rohn 25? You could remove the top section and install the rotor there. Once inside, it might be possible to work it up. I'm not sure anyone here has experi

There is a way to calculate the match parameters in YO. I don't use it. That may be the output for that calculation. If you run that .YAG file in YO, it should tell you. There is no manual that I kno

Plug it into a push button switch, or a wall switch so it can interrupt the 110v while you are operating. We have a lighted china cabinet that does that. I just unscrew the bulbs a couple of turns. C
