I have a EF140 at 5feet above a C3S, at right angles.  The 10M
resonance is a bit high, but that`s the only thing I've seen that
might be ascribed to interaction.  The C3S is about 20 feet above my

That being said, I am replacing both of these with Steppir antennas in
the fall, as soon as the 30-40M dipole arrives, to get all the WARC
bands and somewhat improved performance on 20 through 10.  It should
be a little cleaner looking, too.
