I read an article about the downside of the Hustler series verticals (5BTV, etc.) in that they don't have a way to bleed off static from wind loading. I'm new to the vertical world and didn't know this was one reason that some verticals are noisy. I also have a telescoping whip (17') on a Wolf River coil on a portable base--I suppose this may also be susceptible. I read a few different techniques about placing resistors in line, etc., but I didn't get a handle for any specific technique, and even the value of the resistors seemed to be widely in conflict between several articles (10k to 1M). I'd like an effective and simple way to do it, if possible. So, in layman's terms (please), how much of a problem is wind-induced static on a vertical, and are there suggested ways to bleed it off? Is it more of a problem for receiving, or transmitting as well? Also, I wondered if it is a problem for verticals, is it potentially a problem for dipoles and yagis as well?
