I currently have a 90' grounded tower with a 6 el tribander on a mast at around
105' and a 4 el 40m yagi at 90'. I was wondering what you guys would recommend
for building my first 160m TX antenna- shunt-feeding the tower or handing a
T-vertical between the tower and a tree.
I have never model an antenna before and thus have no idea what the electrical
length of the tower is. Furthermore, I plan on adding 2 more tribanders next
year, at 68' and 30' so the loading will change. Finally, all the books I have
read on shunt-feeding a tower have created an impression that doing so is not
as trivial and certainly not plug-and-play. Thus, I am considering the much
simpler and more predictable T-vertical.
Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
