A couple of questions on this antenna I have put together. It has a top section using a s/s whip,
4 ground plane elements of copper wire, all 102" long mounted on a plastic pole 25ft. above ground.
1 If I swap the plastic pole for a aluminum one, what effect would that have given that it would
be connected to the the braid side of the coax?
2 Run the coax down the inside of the metal pole to ground level, would that decrease common
mode current (noise)?
