Would a Hy-Tower help? (#720)

Bob, KE3CGQ, is an older ham who has been getting back into the swing of things. But he is located in a hollow and thinks it might be wise to raise his antenna and he plans to do this on a Hy-Tower. He asks "Would there be any advantage to raising the Hy-Tower up another eight to sixteen feet ona DBX Tower sections, and run ground wires down to ground level radials?"
