My antennas are situated on my 60 ft. (18 meter) aluminum Heights Fold over tower
built by Heights Tower Systems, Inc., Pensacola, FL.
Two feet above the top plate I installed a Tilt
Over Plate from NN4ZZ, and as of October 2020 is a JK Navassa 5
antenna. Also installed on tower is a small Comet GP-3 dual band
vertical for 2m and 70cm repeater access, along with a 160m short
sloper and 80 /30m inverted vee antenna.This antenna setup replace my Fluidmotion SteppIR 4E
(40/30m) antenna that was originally installed March 10, 2010 and
giving me poor performance.
This antenna setup replaced my Opti-Beam OB12-4
yagi, Cushcraft A3WS/A103 and M2 6M5X 6 meter antennas that was
installed in 2004.
All antennas are connected to a
Array Solutions Rat Pack antenna relay box at the top of tower. I am using two
1/2 inch Heliax from the VHF-UHF antenna and HF antenna switch to the shack
approximately 130 ft. from the tower. Each Heliax run is approximately 200-220 ft.
Pictures of the original installation is below, as you will
notice the tower was installed before the home was built and the antennas were
installed before home was completed. I takes patience to see all that stuff up
there and not able to use it!:
