This antenna should be supported with rope or other nonconductor. The Ladder Line should come away from the flat-top at a right angle for at least 15 feet. The antenna can be erected as an inverted vee (120 degree minimum included angle). Use a piece of heat-shrinkable tubing for weather-proofing your PL-259 coax plug. A suitable antenna tuner will permit operation on all bands 80 through 10.
