Author Topic: 2m/70cm beam below GP-6  (Read 695 times)

I'm thinking of buying a dualband vhf/uhf beam.  I was hoping to put it on the top of my tower, vertically polarized.  My problem is, I already have a Comet GP-6 on top of the tower that I would like to keep up also.  I was wondering, will it work if I mounted the beam to the mast of the rotor, with the GP-6 mounted at the top of the mast above the beam?  Will their be too much interaction between the two antennas?

Thanks, Kyle K0KJL

What's "too much"?

I would be more concerned about the mast itself if the beam is supported in the middle.  Ideally in that case you'd use an end supported beam, or a non conductive mast.  An antenna mounted above or below it I would not be too concerned about since they are "end to end" as far as coupling goes.

They antennas I'm looking at would be end mounted, smaller beams.  Thanks for the info.
