I live in an antenna restricted apartment.  I have been given permission to ground mount a Tar Heel Model 100screwdriver antenna at my flower bed.  I would like to add a 6m dipole in the small space I have.  The dipole will not be high and I hope to catch some Es on 6m.  How close to the model 100 can I place the 6m dipole (which is made of tubing)?

They had to do something.. Win 8 sucks in the Business/Enterprise environment.
Playing with the Beta/Preview today.... Even unfinished with bugs it blows 8 out of the water.

     I'm looking for the manual for a DSI 3600a Frequency Counter.   I've already checked and searched the internet.   I found one for sale for $16, but I only paid $5 for the counter and I'm not sure it works.  I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has a manual and is willing to scan or copy it.  Thanks.

As Dave stated, the bazooka design is a flawed design, unless constructed with stubs in the 10-12 Ohm region. Notables such as Owen Duffy, Walt Maxwel, Frank Wittl et al have written white papers explaining this.
The only way antennas become "quieter" is by modifying the pattern. The Bazooka has a pattern identical to a dipole- thus it is no quieter than a dipole.

You won't find any reputable companies making these antennas.

Well, managed to get a relay through to net control but things pretty much dropped out by the time they got back to me. Heard them calling (barely) but couldn't get back through.
I rarely work 40 m as my low power is generally a struggle on that band but thought I'd give it a try.

Thanks for all the effort though folks!

There is horizontal (which is generally SSB  or AM or CW) activity.

There are several nets and .205 iswhere everyone lands in the AM
looking for ducting and the rare Troposcatter.  Least that what I hear.

Very active during contests.

If you uncertain M2  has a dual polarity 2M 10 element yagi that would
allow for FM DXing and long reach to repeaters.

Net started out like gangbusters with nearly everyone being in the red. At about 01:00, QRN came in and nearly wiped everyone out.

Not too bad here, but those weird tones near 7192 at ~1s intervals suck. I managed to operate the radio in an appropriate fashion to eliminate them though.  Wink
