Hi all
my call is WB3HUS and name is Rich. I got a quick question about
putting a 80 mtr. antenna on top of my mobile home, the dimations
of my mobile home is ~70 foot long and ~14 foot wide. I know that a 40 mtr antenna will fit ok with enough room for end insulaters
I also know that I have a shingle roof with no metal under the roof
just wood rafters. Know, can I put the dipole on the roof bending the antenna at 90 degrees on each of the 2 sides of the dipole to make up the required dimations ? I want to keep it above the roof about 1 to 11/2 feet above the peek of the roof. I'm only going to run about ~100 watts or so, no more than that. know is this possible? please let me know if I can do this, I want to do this because the landlord made me take down my 3 element tri band yagi and my tower. property is her's but the mobile home is mine (I own it ). you can answer this post or send me a email. use the post first. I've tried to find this in the antenna book and the Handbook. I could not find any usefull info on this, so I'm turning to my fellow Hams for a solution.

Thanks
