Thanks Brett. The only good thing about the Butternut vertical is it
was easy to assemble and adjust. I don't have any radials, so I know
Mother Earth is getting the lion's share of my signal. I would love to
get up a wire, but I have a building that is to be erected soon (I hope)
and I can't do much until that is done. In the mean time I'm just
heating the ground beneath my vertical.
Did you use the B&W folded dipole they insist will cover 160 through 10
without a tuner? Geez, I hope not because that's the one I have an have
been dying to get up. If it's a clunker on AM I am in deep trouble in
the wire department.
I'm not a MFJ fan at all, but they are the only one around with a 80
meter rotatable dipole. However, that dream fell though anyway. I
called them and production won't start until next year! I won't need it
then. Go figure...

I tried one of the B+W all band antennas, the swr was bad....
