Hello group. In the coming months (when the weather breaks) I am going to be installing antennas for 2, 435 and probably 1269. I purchased a Cushcraft A144-11 beam at a recent hamfest (the price was right). I would rather re purpose than spend big dollars on antennas. My question is should I run a single antenna on 2 or try to get a pair of these and phase them? Or maybe add elements on this boom to get circular. Or just use this antenna by itself? I hope this makes sense. I do not have a 435 antenna at the present time but do have a few 1296 loopers. Thanks hope to be on the birds in a few months. Mike
