[CQ-Contest] Multiband Antenna separation for Multiplierstation...

Hi Doug, 

I am not a N+ (Network) guy, so I wouldn't really want to make an educated
statement and any advice I would give would only be a  guess.
I know often I hear they don’t like running network cables like Cat5E or
Cat6 more than 100m (321').

If all your main antennas are horizontal beams, dipoles etc. then I would
really think about using a multiband vertical for mult hunting. (especially
same band)
If however you have mostly verticals on your run radio, then a high
horizontal ZS6BKW (with added 15m dipole, as the 'BKW won't work on 15m) is
a great antenna I have found.

I don't know if I would trust a HP environment with 200' of separation and
same band operation with the same polarization of antennas.

I do LP so2r,. 100-300' separation and then opposite polarization and am
treading on this ice (getting close) to danger levels with some combos of
band & antenna.

Make measurements before blowing something up, hi hi

I hope you get many answers to make an informed decision!

Hi Mike,

Thank you very much for your ideas, advices and suggestions....Yes,
everything help.

I think we can install the MULT station in a shack about 200 or 300 ft from
the RUN shack but what about the Computer Network ??.

In this HP RF enviorement...what is the best Wireless or Cable to make a
reliable PC Network?...if Cable is more realiable...what is the maximum
distance between PC´s we can get?



Doug, CO8DM
