    Nice deal that it's pre-made, looks like a PLJ-8LED China freq counter, sold for less than 20$ stuffed in a plastic case.

    No tower, just a pole mounted on an old Iron hand cart/dolly!

    The main thing is a 1/4 wave length at least for a counter-poise on the A99 to go underneath the 1/2 vertical. I might install 4 1/4 wave radials at the base to see if the SWR will lower.

    Well the counter you showed me is cool. That is above my knowledge.lol Your antenna set up is simular to mine . My mast is 27 ft. My Imax is mounted with 3 radials (speaker wire) @ 9 ft. They are attached to my 3 dacron rope guys.
