Thanks. That’s interesting. I’m still hoping to replace the the wire from the ARRL kit with a longer one. No traps, just wire.

I’m considering replacing the 40m HW with approximately 134 foot wire to get 80 m and WARC bands.

Anyone tried this? Seems like the 49:1 UNUN would stay the same. I would like your thoughts on this.

Thanks, Dan

I have a 30-foot tower for 6m work with a Hazer to raise and lower the antenna / rotor setup. The mast extends 10-feet up from the tower top. I have used a single 5-element extended boom Yagi mounted half way up the mast and a 6m vertical on top of the mast.
I would like to add a second identical 6m Yagi but that would place one all the way at the top by the vertical and one only a few inches above the tower.
Is this a problem?
Will the lower antenna work alright close to the tower top?
Do I need to remove the vertical?
Do absolutely have to find a longer mast?
Thanks!
