Well, thanks again and that is why I posted here....to get some creative input Wink I will try the hustler ( have 3 antennas now) on 6 and see how it works. Have to come up with a way to adjust the SWR, and hopefully it will be an added length because I sure won't cut it. I'm only interested in the lower end of 6 anyway. Did not know Hustler advertises the 6 meter option, but obviously makes total sense.

You probably won't have to worry about SWR. The ground losses on 6 meters, if you mount the antenna correctly, will be about 2 or 3 ohms. Added to the 1/4 wave's input impedance, that's an SWR of about 1.4:1 which is close enough.

Well, after a lot of research I decided on the Par Omni Angle, however they have shut down production to fulfill government contracts  Angry So I ordered the M2 HO Loop from AES. I will still check out the Hustler with the 3 antenna coils removed, just as a test. So, I appreciate all the help given here and I think it got me to make a better decision than I would otherwise have done.
