[TowerTalk] 80 m rotatable dipole

At that height - I would suggest a vertical antenna, and use the 432 stack
as a capacitance hat...would work much better, with lower angle of radiation
(good for DX) than a dipole.

My 0.02 worth...

Thinking about a rotatable dipole for 75/80 meters.I could put it up at
85-90 feet.Worth the trouble at that height?I have Rohn 45 tower with about
12 square feet of antenna load on it now (4 times 432-13wla).So I can't get
too crazy.Force 12,M2 what is the ideas out there.Will use it mostly to
chase dx,as much as only 85 feet will do.   Gregg  K9KL
