On the left is my 60′ 80M vertical and on the right – an MA160V
I was going to slap this Top Band TX antenna up just for a quick new one on 160M with Baker Island, but then decided to maybe keep it up for the very occasional chance I will get to work new one on Top Band. Besides Baker, only Ducie seems to be another one just where I need both 160M and 6M (only) for these “easy chip shot” entities from the West Coast.
I’ll have to add another relay to the 80M switching box and think about the ground – I’m not sure if the two antennas can share the same radials without “breaking” the ground – so that only one or the other antenna is using them. My 40M phased array shares the same ground radials – but that’s an intended part of that circuit.
For KH1/KH7Z I have the MA160V connected and the 80M vertical completely disconnected – both center and ground.
I’m also listening on 6M – at 50.105 as I putter around in the shack – its 90 – something degrees out – so I got my antenna work done in the morning shade.
OK – I was so busy at work this week I finally have time to start chasing them on Top and Bottom bands.
