Hi  Folks,

I've decided to get serious and try to put up an 80 meter 4-Square around my 
117' tower of Rohn 55. Getting into my place can be a VERY SERIOUS CHALLENGE to 
any tandem rig so that may make getting 40' long 3" and 2" irrigation tubing 
difficult to deliver. I've got new steel racks on my 3/4 ton Dodge pickup but I 
think the best I can do in length is about 25' or so. Has anyone come up with a 
better method to build some 80 meter 1/4 wavelength verticals that won't cost a 
ton of bucks?  There is also the problem of going from 3" to 2" tubing with a 
conductive joint. Probably will just see if the local supplier can deliver them 
and let them deal with that busy narrow road. 

I'm going to be elevating the verticals about 10' up  with elevated radials per 
some of the info in 'Low Band DXing'. Thought  about using wire verticals but 
would like something a bit more substantial. Do need something that can give me 
some serious help on that band.

Any help?
