An extra 20 ft
with the 10 ft
mast you have already - plus guy wires and a ~40 ft
piece of coax - and you should do real well.
Don't buy/use cheap coax. I have always regretted using cheap coax. I may have regretted spending money on decent coax at first
; but it was always the right thing to do in the long run.
Example: Don't buy/use Radio Shack coax.
