In the "all threads drift astray, eventually" department...
"A friend of mine asked me about the 14AVQ vertical. I wanted to
re-familiarize myself so I looked it up on the Hy-Gain website. At the
bottom of the manual is a Hy-Gain addendum. It is anything &
ever wanted to know about phasing multi-band verticals."
To which I will append: The best thing I ever did with a 14AVQ was
to a 33' tapered piece of aluminum, and put it on top of a 50' pole
radials. It was a killer on 40m, holding regular skeds with hong kong.
The insulated base is convenient. The traps ... well, can we say IR
