hi hi...Pat W5THT is running tubes on the 600 meter band. I recall him 
saying something about his tank coil won't fit inside the amp 
chassis...hi hi...
But the antennas are not too Wahoo on that band. Most are running 50' 
verticals with big hats. Some are running 200-400+' transmitting loops. 
There are a couple 95' or so foot verticals on the band and those guys 
have the real big signals.
Anything over 50' tall works on all 3 low bands. Just as the wife might 
say, 'the bigger the better'...hi hi... Nothing too crazy down there. 
Just got to watch A/C resistance on connections so you don't start fires 
or melt connectors...hi hi...
