Subject: getting started

Hello I am new to reflector. and very new to top band. need suggestions as how to get started with my limited conditions. am now using a inverted law with 30 1/4 wave radials for 160. my problem is obtaining the height. most I can get is 40 feet. I have the LAW strung between 2 trees but with sag all I can get is 40ft.I HAVE A 48FT tower which has a pushcart 2 el 40 mar yogi and 10 feet above that is a Mosley  Classic 33.I have tried to shunt feed that but so far no luck.must be doing something wrong. I have managed to work about 60 dx stations over the years but need to get going on Top Band.enjoyed the last SP contest .any suggestion would be helpful
