Years ago (well around 2000) I got my ham license, shortly thereafter my children were born and Ham radio kinda was on the backburner.
Now I am trying to get everything back up and running, my daughter had to move rooms, into my old shack, and I had to fit everything into a tiny room, anyway, good in a way, was an opportunity to sort things out, and get everything re-set up.
Now I am a bit out of things.... I apologize.....
I only had a 20M dipole on my roof, in an inverted V-Sloper combination. It worked well and made a lot of QSO's, especially on PSK31 which I worked a lot... At some point a plumber was working on my roof, and he came down with my Dipole cut to pieces, he thought it was old, and since he was working on the roof, he took it off... So right now I am contemplating a new antenna setup.
I have a flat roof with a chimney, the chimey I would like to use as a support for a few dipoles.
I was thinking to install three dipoles for 10,17 and 20 meters, and a longwire/endfed for 40 meters.
I am only able to use one site of the chimney for support as it off to the side of the house, and thus would like to install all three dipoles in the inverted V/Sloper combination in close proximity to eachother. So at the lowest point on the chimney the feedpoint would be for the 10M, a little up the 17M and the top one the 20M, the endfed antenna I have to slope/bend around the roof a bit, to fit it in the limited space on the roof.
Question is: Would that give any problems, the radiators are fairly close to eachother.
The 10,17 and 40 will be connected to a switch and then to antenna connector 2 on my rig, and the 20M dipole permanently on the Antenna 1 connector.
Anyway,I as just wondering if the dipoles would be ok in this configuration...
Thanks for your Help!
