I'm sure this thread has been discussed on here before.  I just moved to a
new QTH and I'm trying to get a beverage out before winter. At the moment I
can get one out in the east-west direction but it will only be 225 ft long.
If I take it up the hill at 90 degs I could make it 450 ft long.  How will
this effect signals coming in?  (I guess my answer to myself is, you never
know until you try it).  But I thought that I'd ask the experts on here to
see what they have to say about it.  You can email me direct or answer on
