I have just acquired a used Comet GP-15 fiberglass covered vertical.
This neat antenna covers 6, 2 and 440.

I'm looking for recommendations as to preferred mounting height, 
concerns about proximity to other antennas, and anything I might
do to enhance longevity.

The current plan is to clean the radials with a green pad and spray
them with some sort of protective coating.  What should I use?  What
should I avoid?

My first thought is to mount it on the very top of the Rohn 45, above
the Force 12 C3SS, with the base at about 80 feet -- about 2 feet
above the C3SS.  Sound OK?
