[TowerTalk] 160M Loop
Wed, 15 Mar 2000 03:06:34 HST
I am putting up a horizontal full wave loop for 160M. (Remember my previous
post on slingshooting over trees?) It will average about 40' high. I don't
expect it do much for DX, but I need it to work the Islands (250 mile range)
in an emergency in the very early morning hours--when 40 and 80M are out
One of the corners will be near a wooden power pole which carries 240V.
Fortunately, there is no transformer on it and no high voltage feeder lines.
My question is: Is there any distance I need to keep away from the pole to
avoid QRN? I need to be as close as possible to it to get enough wire out
on my city lot.
