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 ?
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 .
