Tuning a antron 99 ant to ten meters bearclaw53 on 30/12/14
I use the Solarcon A-99 for weak signal digital on 10m,12m,15m, and 17m. I also have used a tuner at 20m with this antenna. I would not cut the antenna . I would use the tuning rings and leave the length intact. Simple hook up the swr meter and raise or lower the rings. It seems broad banded enough if you leave it intact. This way you have addition bands without destroying the antenna. I tuned mine to 12m and it work well.

I live in en22ha and the entire portion of the satellite band on 2m is ruined by trucking companies, farmers and custom field services. Feel lucky you do not live in Iowa.Where all your work setting up has been spoiled by unlicensed users. Besides business farm operations on 145.945 , 145.835 and145.845, even the Experimental portion is being invaded. Enjoy while you can !
15m 3/4wave portable gives10m-40m N0MZR on 25/7/14
Portable antennas for camping seem to be a problem for many in my area. Here is what I use. I cut a vertical for 15m ssb phone to 3/4 wave or 32ft. 11in . My radials are 4 ea. at 32ft. 4in. Attached to a base of your choice and fed with 50 ohm coax About 50 ft . On 10m good low angle propagation is acceptable for DX. On 40m you have a 1/4 wave. On 20m it approximates a half wave. Or CW 15m 3/4 wave cut to 33 ft. 3 in. This is a quick one wire up a tree (with my fishing rod and a sinker of adequate weight to fall thru the tree) and 3-4 radials on the ground.(put black tape over one end of each radial . I also use a antenna tuner to extend my other band travels to check in on the 3.970 net. Its simple and often overlooked. This made me a happy camper.

Thanks for the input, here in my locale answers are hard to come by. I am glad we have the ARRL forum. 73 Everett n0mzr
