First thank you George k5kg. Dave ab7e and Cort k4wi for input on my experiment of using
multiple antennas. I need to read more on the subject, but from the liitle I have read I may
have problems with this. The thing is I have two different beams (A4S and TH 5 ) on seperate towers.
Up to this point I can feed the TH5 at 75 feet alone or the th5 and A4S (at 35 ft ) together.
Not the A4S alone yet. With both beams swr goes up a bit but rigs antenna tuner takes care
of it. I am thinking I can live with this ? It is probably to soon to know for sure, but even with this
simple setup I like the results I see. I would say with CQ WW comming up next weekend I should
have a better feel for this idea. i certainly am opean for any more sugestions or explanations why
this is not a good idea.
OBTW Cort good luck with your 10 meter setup, I am sure it will as good or better than before the storm.
In my case I was luck only the short tower bent over its now only a 33 footer
