Dual 102 ss whip base

Post by Zero58 » 03 Sep 2019, 23:36

I want to build a base antenna out of 2/102 stainless steel whips, using one as the driver and one as the counterpoise! Do I need to use 6 inch springs to extend it to 108 inches, or not? put it up horz about 30 feet and see what happens! Any Ideas in this would be helpful. Thank You.
