Hello,

I have too much tower sections sitting in the back yard.  This came from a police station via another ham in the club.  It was met for light VHF/UHF antennae and the windloading in 90mph winds is not high.  I would guess at 2 sqft.  

Does anyone have some ideas of what would be the most economical idea for best results on 160/80/40?

Should I put some section up and make a shunt fed vertical?  A Four square off the tower?  Bobtail curtains?  Some interveted V's?

I want mechanically KISS ideas.

What would everyone else do with the tower?

thanks
bill

This tower is interesting.  I think that I have 10 sections of 8 foot lengths.
