Anyone have any info? I have a 4 el unit but can only (maybe) accommodate a 3el triangle on my property. W hat would have to be done to the controller box etc.?

I haven't used the HI-Z 2 element or the 
JK system. I do have both the HI-Z 3 and 8 
element arrays. I find them both 
invaluable on 160 and 80. They do work on 
the higher bands as well, I usually use my 
triangular for 20M & up but I have only 
vertical antennas, no tribander. 

I can say that on a given 160 & 80 DX 
signal, the 8 usually hears better than 
the 3 but not always, the 3 sometimes gets 
the best copy but always better by far 
than the sloper on 160 & INV-L on 80. 

You'll never find better support than you 
get from HI-Z.
