Topband: shunt fed verticals

Sun Sep 10 12:08:03 EDT 2006

I am not into 4 square vertical beams because of space  problems but I have 
seen various methods of insulating verticals, many  unreliable and expensive. 
But several years ago I shunt fed my one and  only rohn 6 tower at my old QTH 
with excellent results. This was about  99 foot high. Is there any reason you 
could not shunt feed each vertical of your  4 square.  Looks like it might be 
cheaper and more reliable.  Just  curious.   James in Ames    W0NFL
