Jim,

I have the same antenna in my storage bin.  I bought it thinking I could use it for the RV, but its too large.    So its available!    and 60 miles from you.

I’m seeing faint traces but no decodes.

 

I’ll leave the radio on tuned to 10140 and fldigi spotting to pskreporter, so if my station gets decodes they should show up on pskreporter.info.  Might be helpful to someone while I dash out and get some lunch.

I have been looking at the offset fed vertical dipole flagpole. I am contemplating moving later this summer and this may be the answer to my problem. Take a look.

Thanks to last Sunday's 3 new 30m QSOs, I am now up to eight. It was good to see some more activity on 30m. I usually send a few CQs out on 30m any time I switch from 40m to 20m or back, but usually without any takers. If we can make this a regular event, I am all for it.

Well, after 20 years of faithful service, a storm raged through the other evening, and my GAP Titan DX is barely usable.  The top portion was bent over at about a 30 degree angle, and the rods are broken and twisted.  Some connections have completely broken off.  I still have my wire that I can use, but would like to get another vertical for 80-10 meters.  The Titan is mounted on a TV mast that is in a tripod on the ground. 

Problems:  Deed restrictions, no towers, wasn't supposed to have this Gap Titan, but no one has complained in 20 years.  Limited space, no radials.  No guys would be ideal. 

Would appreciate any comments, suggestions that would get the Titan DX replaced.

The cheapest solution I can come up with:
Looking at ur house from the street there are some decent trees on the right side.
You might consider a 43ft vert wire hidden in the tree wrkd against a ground rod at the base.
Use green coated wire for a hidden result. Remember those old Xmas light strings, plenty of
wire there. With an SGC-239 at the base and below ground coax no one would ever find it.

If you are really adventurous try a 132ft inverted L wrkd against the grd rod. Install about 30-40ft vert then run the balance horizontally thru the trees.

When I first started I was always told to never let the antenna touch a tree. I have been using
insulated wire in trees for >10yrs.

Assumed you weren’t aware of that, but you seem to be aware of the RF issues and how to deal with them.  Others may not be; so maybe it will help them.    Too much RF coming back down the feedline could cause RF burns which are deep and painful.  A friend , the original K9ATI) got nasty RF burn off 75 watt transmitter.
