Phew, what a question - which vertical shall I get
Right, here's the situation - the vertical will be ground mounted in open farmland with a clear takeoff in all directions, with plenty of room for radials. Quite a windy location, though.
Not particularly interested in the lower HF bands (40 and 80) but would really like the WARC bands as 17m is my current favourite at solar minimum. During solar max I tend to spend most time on 10m and 15m. And I tend to prefer DX'ing rather than local work, so looking for low angle radiation.
After going thru specs and reviews for a few months, the Butternut HF9V comes out top of my list, but almost has too much on it - I don't get a lot of spare time so tend to concentrate on 1 or 2 bands at any one time, so whole HF converage is not one of my priorities.
And before you ask, yes I'm going to eventually get a tower (in 3 or 4 years time) but this is something to see me through until then.
Grateful for your thoughts.
