This is my antenna tower with a FB33, 3 element Tribander from Fritzel up about 40 feet. The tower is a BP30 made by VERSATOWER and has three segments. The antenna rotor is a HAM IV from hy-gain. I am using the tower also as a vertical for 80 m. The tower is grounded and I am using an omega match located at the bottom of the tower. The feeding point is on top of the first segment, about 10 feet above the ground. The vertical is tuned to the DX portion of the 80m band (3780-3800). The SWR is better than 1:1.1.
