please forgive me if this is a not so smart question.... I ask it because after
having done some research, both with ON4UN’s book and on this site I’ve not
really seen an answer. Several people have posed this question over a number of
years with nary a reply...
Ground: the area I have where I can put either a 4 sq tx array (this is for 80
by the way) or a possible 8 element (113’ diameter) RX array slopes from one
corner upward another 15’ over ~330’. Is this an issue? Can this be modeled
(not that I have the tools or the knowledge to do so)? For this array the
difference from one corner worse case to the opposite corner (where the
verticals would be) is about 2 –3’ so I’m not so worried about that change...
the radials however would be sloping up hill on one side (as much as 7’ over
the ~66’ length) and down on the opposite side (3’ over its length).
Is it any different if I instead plant a 113’ diameter 8 element RX array here
(for 160/80)? Does it like this better, worse, or the same?
Thanks for any considered response...
