I am also on a steep ridge, approximately 60 feet down from the top. Lots
of 60-90 foot oaks and poplars. I have a hytower and have used two
different W1CF/Colatchco verticals with great success in an 80 meter 4
square and as a single 160 meter vertical. The secret is 37,000 feet of
radials on the ground in the woods...
