View Full Version : Stack Distance for Vertical on top of a beam

This is what I have. I have a Diamond x2000 Vertical 6m/2m/.70cm it weights 3.3lbs. Then I have a cushcraft A1482t 2m beam which has 10 element vertical and 10 elements horizontal, it weights 7.0 lbs so it can be use for SBB as well as FM. The Diamond will be on top and the Cushcraft will be below on the same mast. So what would be the recommended distance between the Diamond and the Cushcraft. The mast will be mounted to a Channel Master tv antenna rotor up @ about 40'0 guyed. I hope this rotor will be ok.

You'll find out if it's okay or not after a few windstorms.;)
As for separation, the vertical elements on the beam need to be completely below the radials on the base of the vertical. That's all the separation you need.

Hello, I am planning on putting a 10 mtr verticle over a 10 mtr 3 element cushcraft beam using a small rotator. All on a 35ft pushup on the roof. You might want to consider buying a support bearing assy. Take a look at : www.aedwis.com. AES also sells them, about $19.00 + shipping.

May I ask why you are doing that, out of curiosity?
