I am moving into a new apartment in the city soon which is on the 24th and last floor of an apartment building. I will have access to the roof of the building also.
I'm still trying to understand antenna theory fully.
I am very tempted to buy one of those 6-band hex beams and install it there. The question is, will such a height from the ground have a negative or positive impact for me? I plan to operate from 20 to 10 meters.
The fact that this is a balanced antenna, do I have to worry about a ground or distance from the ground?
The location in the city where the apartment building is already at over 1000ft above sea level. My guess is that this along with the building height, I should be able to send out one hell of a signal locally, but what about for DX'ing? I am interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance.
