HI Guys:

I'm in the need of a good advice , the idea that is simple let me  explain it

110 ft of Rohn 25  plus pipe on top , ceramic insulators  to break the guy wire and several pieces of phillystran for the top  guys, non insulated  from ground, with gamma match to adjust to 160m ,  at least 60 radials 1/4 wave.

This tower dedicated for 160m  but want to support a 80m dipole 4sq like comtek  show in their web page, the tips toward the tower and  the center away from the tower  like < I > .

Will  hear from you guys  if this idea will work like I want or  what  can be better

Inverted L's 4 sq hanging from this tower ?

Use the tower insulated ?

Interaction  ?

Impossible or  not recomended ?  why?

at this moment  we are planning  the tower installation and have the time to do it correctly.

I get the idea from  ON4UN set up.

All the advices will be greatly appreciated we want to have it ready for the CQ WW  .
