    Should be even better 20+ feet higher and on a 3 element yagi, but yes it work awesome, only problem is alot of noise as I am very close to hydro lines. Going to start with a ac line conditioner then maybe a dsp unit/speaker. Also mention I now have a metal roof and I am not much above the roof as seen in pic.

    I had a similar setup yrs ago. A 3 element yagi with an a99 above it on 50' of tower. That was an awesome setup. But alas I had to sell most of my equipment when my first wife passed away.:(

    Well sorry about your first wife..but yes I think it would be a nice setup, I have an old wilson shooting star in the garage but need a boom for it , but like to have my omni up as well, hence the yagi.

    Was outside looking around the house as we had a good windstorm last night and snapped a few pics of the coax junction box at house entry, 8' copper ground rod below this box and the tower also has a 8' ground rod at base. Might also get another Array Solution surge protector to add in line.

    I bought the power supply from ebay seems to work ok, but fans are a tad noisy its a 150+ amp I have seen just it draw about 130amps running my sweet 16 driven by my 2990DX, as for the magnum 6500R its a great little amp with very low hrs on it, bought it on CL a few years back it was NOS for $200 and has 4 toshiba 2879's in it, I use it mainly for the HR2510's and seems to get good reports on ssb.

    The model is RD power 2KW-12

    here is the inside of the magnum 6500R
