KY6R 40M Bobtail Element Supports

I just realized that with the three aluminum elements – I will need to keep it to the classic broadsided Bobtail

This center element will be fed against ground

The dual feed idea is great – but support wise – because its 140′ wide – I will need to guy the end elements – the center might need a few guys as well – all Dacron 3/16″ UV protected rope, and the DXE resin guy rings.

One big benefit will be that I will no longer need my Ratpack or DXE DV-40-P control box in the shack – I can replace them with my two QRP rigs, which I haven’t had room for on my operating table.
