Amateurs often ask: What is the best antenna to use to work DX? The author shows how free propagation analysis software and antenna modeling can help answer that question. To focus on something specific, he ask the question: For 40-meter DX, which is better, a dipole at 45 feet height or a ground-mounted vertical with 4 radials? The answer may surprise you!
