A sort of passive amplifier: The low radiated power of the small antenna is 
by the big antenna, maybe 100m away, mysticly amplified and then radiated again 
giving a much stronger signal? How does this work?

At this frequency with both antennas resonant on 136 khz on the same site, the
induced rf from the small vertical into the larger one would distort any
meaningful tests. The antennas would need to be sited several kilometres apart,
when co located one would need to be dismantled while the other one is tested.
I have already tested this by starting off with a 60 ft vertical and progressing
to 120 ft and it certainly made a big difference for the same given rf power
output. Signal reports all over europe confirm this.
