It is time for me to install a more permanent HF antenna system to make more routine HF contest operation possible. I wish to install a vertical to reduce complexity.
I have no room for radials so I'm looking to install either (1) a 1/2 wave (no radials needed) or (2) 1/4 wave trap vertical (40-10 meter) at the top of a 30' Aluminum tower...using only the tower itself as a counterpoise.
Does anyone have any real-world experience with this sort of setup that they care to pass along? Any/all insights specific to this thought would be appreciated. Thank you!
