I am trying to use a 160m sloper on a TRI-EX 54 foot crank-up tower.
I have a L bracket affixed to the top section for the connection utilizing PL-259. The sloper wire is approx 143 feet long using formula of 260/1.825 mhz. Basic operation of wire to center conductor and shield to tower.
Has anyone successfully gotten one of these slopers to work on a crank-up ??
Did you have to run a wire from the top section to ground ??
Impediance is 60 ohms but can see 50 ohms at 2.000mhz
Any help would be appreciated.
