Before I commit to adding a relay to my 17M EDZ, I figure I better do an A – B test between my “contorted” Inverted L and the EDZ clip led at the feedpoint as a Marconi T.
Using 100 watts and RBN, the winner is …
For West Coast RBN stations the Inverted L. This makes sense because I am down in the bowl – and so I’m reminded that if the Marconi T has a lower take off angle (which I am 100% sure it does), then that doesn’t help me.
I did listen to farther away DX and it was a draw.
But, for me, this test is moot – I’ll keep the Inverted L with the slight “aim” at 3Y0Z. This also reminds me that the 92 that I have worked on Top Band could only have been done with high angle propagation at my QTH.
