Thank you for taking the time to post this. I appreciate it. I’m not adverse to hearing what I don’t want to hear providing it said in the decent way which you did and I appreciate. Here’s the dilemma I have then... I am permanently disabled. Cannot use my right arm which is my dominant arm and I want to get on 80 m. I can’t climb up on my roof. There’s no way I could even brace myself to get out the window with my right arm the way it is… Is simply buying an 80m dipole the only solution in your opinion for me then? I live in a standard suburban like small town 50x75 lot. I understand that if a tuner won’t do the job even though I’ve seen many people say they’ve worked 80 m with one just fine, then will an 80 m dipole antenna work just above ground level providing the entire antenna doesn’t touch the ground or a conductor and is grounded? btw: I truly do appreciate all of the help everyone’s given me. Thought I would share a nice picture today of the Pacific ocean from the central Oregon coast.
