Hi Tim,,I'll try to describe my ant. as best as I can. Its actually a 40,80 and 160 on one feed. 40 section is 30 ft of cheap TV tower with ten feet of tubing on top. There are two 4 ft 2 by 3 spreaders, one 2 ft from the bottom and the other at 30 ft. 80M section is 12 gauge stranded copper about 66 ft long running up the end of the spreader and out to a nearby tree (too close to the tree, it is really into the tree). 160M section runs up the other spreader and over a near by tree the slopes downward, element is about 130 ft. 80 and 160 are tied together at the base of the 40M element. Fed with coax to an I.C.E. static discharge. This set up works VERY well for me. It IS over a considerable ground field. Good luck with your install and let us know how it end's up! 73 Peter
