Subject: [TowerTalk] Ideal DXP Antenna
> While at Ascension Island, Jan K4QD and I discussed antennas and what
> would be the ideal antenna for us during the low sun spot cycle. We came
> up with a 3 element beam for 20-17-15 meters. Keeping in mind the weight.
> Most airlines now limited you to 2 bags @ 50 pounds.
> Looking around I see Force-12 makes one (DXer/S) but it is too costly and
> heavy to carry around. We thought of the Cushcraft A3S. What do we need
> to do to modify this antenna from 10-15-20 to 15-17-20 ???? Any ideas?
> Can if be down using same hardware?
> With a antenna for these bands we can also carry the Force-12 Sigma-5 and
> vertical dipole for 30/40 meters.
