John and Armin,
I read with interest the N6LF article that tells of using a metal roof
about 35 by 60 feet as the lower "disk". My new radio shack will be in a
barn that has a metal roof a bit smaller than this, but I'm willing to try
it out. I have trees off one end of the roof peak, and may have to either
put up a support for the other end, or let it slope.
Has anyone else used a metal roof this way?
