How high is the KT-36XA? If its high enough (>60 ft),
leave it up and mount the M2 7EL on a ring rotor 35'
below it and phase the two antennas in a stack. This
will preserve your capability on 15 and 20 meters
and give you added gain and flexibility (ability to fire
in 2 directions at once, in-phase/out-of-phase
configuration, etc) on 10 meters.
