Managed to find a lot of information on the subject, have read all weekend
but i believe i will go for a 1/4 wave made of lifeline 40-45 feet which i can pull up from stern somewhere, without conflict with the mainsail/boom. the other 1/4 wave below deck
. since I will be using ham bands like 3,5/7/10/14/18/21 mhz i will test out if I will need counterpoise
for all the bands. I will start with testing the rails as grounding, then adding some copper inside the hull
one side or both. have a standing wave instrument which I will be using during testing. I will be back onboard next thursday with a IC-7300 and a AH-4 tuner.
Your GAM antenna is that the GAM split lead ?
