SSB/Ham Antenna on American Tug 34
I am buying an American Tug 34 and want to install a ham radio. What have other AT owners or Nordic Tug owners used for an Antenna?
I am a licensed ham. On my sailboat I made an antenna by removing the core from some double braid rope and replacing it with a piece of wire. I won't have the mast height to make the wire long enough to be resonant.
I am expecting to have to use a manufactured vertical antenna. However, the AT 34 is not that tall so a 23' antenna will more than double air draft of the boat and won't provide any support for the top of the antenna.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
