Well this antenna season is almost over so its time to start thinking about 
next year..........!I've been thinking about stacking 2 tribanders with a 
shorty 40 above the upper tribander.I have stacked 2 6M-7JHV's and I'm 
impressed so I think I might do the same with tribanders.I'm thinking about 
an 80-90 foot tower with a TH-7,X-7 or Skyhawk for the tribanders above that 
would be a CC 40 meter beam,8-10 feet above.At maybe the 40 foot level I 
would put an IIX swinging gate and put another (same ) tribander and use 
Comtek stack match.Ithink this would be a really nice arrangement.Any 
thoughts.I live near Green Bay,WI and want to be loud in Europe.I want to be 
competive in contests but I know about stacked stacks and such.I want to be 
a "2nd tier" station.Is there a formula to figure out how far you need tp 
pull out the top guys in order to have x amount of clearance at x amount of 
height.It been awhile since if been in high school math.  Gregg  K9KL
