I live near Bemidji, MN. Have acres of land, and lots of trees and a chainsaw. Want to erect this spring a modest contest station. Have three 60' 25g towers with ham iv rotors. Currently own a mosely cl36, a wilson 4 el mono for 20m and a cushcraft 2 el 40 beam, a gap voyager DX verticle and plenty of copper antenna wire to erect (at roughly 50') a 160m horizontal loop. Waiting for spring to erect this (prob June as it is a high of 15degrees today) modest antenna farm. Any advice on how to improve this without to much damage to my wallet would be appreciated. Have 5 hf rigs and 3 lin amps, so that end is ok, just advice on improvemt of antennas would be appreciated.
Thanks,

PS purchased 2 more ham IV rotators and scored on one more tower. 55ft self supporting.
