OK Gang, I need help - advice. In order for me to work 30M I need to go
down in the basement to my G5RV. Its dark down there with spiders so I
need to build another antenna (any excuse is better than none).

I have a 40M delta loop out my bedroom window can hang a 30M loop inside
the 40 and use the supports and feed line (1/4 wave 75 ohm to 50 ohm feed
line) or do I need another 1/4 wave match?

Right now the 40M is horizontal into the back yard at about 28 feet.
Could I make the 30M vertical (square) next to the house. The side of
the house is wood siding and I don't believe the insulation had any metal
wrap (17 years old). SHould I support the antenna away from the house,
if so how far?

Well its back downstairs to the spiders to play radio.

de KB0ROL, Brad
