A buddy I use to drag race with back in south florida in the '70's . He was also heavily into HAM at the time and had several radios set up and other black boxes and had a tower out back that had a main section that was hinged and had a few other sections that elevated and I remember him saying could reach to 60 feet on the tower plus a the antenna with a large flat directional antenna , may 12 to 20 feet on the tips across . He got into this enough that he ended up servicing towers for swfl area radio stations for some years then got in to charter boat fishing and had a heart attack maybe 6 years ago and passed away . Good guy . For some of the old timers see if anyone remembers a Jeff Player - Naples Fl
