As I live in a remote and semi-rare grid square, I need good sized
antennas just to be heard in the Los Angeles area. The home QTH is in a
valley surrounded by +5000ft mountains, so portable is the only way to
go. It takes about four hours to set it all up. When done I have 3
masts; a 6-meter beam, a 2M-222-432 set, and 902 together with 1296.
This separation allows me to work in different directions when I need
to. It also consolidates the antennas with similar beamwidths on their
own masts, making the steering a little bit easier.
