I am interested in how many regulars on this list are not using beams or quads, but instead are using dipoles, verticals, random wires-basically no or very little gain antennas. ...
At the current K3VAT all trap dipoles (one WARC at 30' and one non-WARC at 40') and one 55' tree vertical (wire running up the side of the tree and 30 short radials for low bands). Have earned DXCC on the WARC bands with this arrangement and added a few dozen band-fills to my non-WARC 6BDXCC.
Reason why no beams/towers = relocated to retirement community with HOA limitations against towers and visible antennas such as yagis/quads/hexbeams/etc.
Plans: none. Perhaps build more efficient dipoles (fatter, rotatable and higher in the trees), but am content with current arrangement.
