I had K5RC up to my shack yesterday.  One of Tom's  suggestions was to 
put up a flat top dipole for 80M in addition to my 4-square.  I have 
enough tower to put my newest tower up to 100+ feet and string a dipole 
between the towers at about 70' on one tower and 100' on the other.  The 
broadside of the dipole would look over a 250' dropoff and should act 
higher than it would actually be.  

My question... Do any of you 4-square owners have flat top dipoles up in 
addtition to your 4-square?  Is it advantageous?  How much of the time?
