I recently installed my Zerofive multiband vertical at my new QTH. I was going to install my hex beam on an existing tower but found two of the legs had small splits. I guess from moisture freezing in them. I'm not going to put anything on the tower other than a Alpha Delta DX-DD. Back to the vertical. It has six 133" counterpoise. I get dx like gangbusters. Not much state side. Is there a way to rein this thing in? Like bending the counterpoise, removing them or maybe less than six? It's getting harder to climb the ladder, don't want to buy the extra set of counterpoise for experimentation. Any ideas?
