Greetings from Saudi Arabia!  I think a lot about my home QTH in California and 
how I want to make the most of my antenna potential. 

I have an area that I would like to devote to receiving antennas, that's about 
150' square feet. Thought about the DXE Active 4 Sq array but they say 
installing this on Sloping terrain will degrade its performance. In my case, 
the slope is about 30-35 degrees, so I'm sure that limits me. 

The transmitting antenna area is about 300-400 feet away, which provides 
adequate isolation from where I want to install a receiving antenna. Trying to 
figure out what is most suitable.  In addition to 160m, I am also interested in 
BCB DXing and some the demonstrations viewed on YouTube are quite impressive!

Would really appreciate some input. I can always provide my home address, where 
the two antenna areas can be seen on Google Maps.
