Jim I agree with Don K5AQ.. My tower is slightly higher ..18 meters and the 
yagi is just above it.
I was using 1/4 wave sloper for almost 15 years and I'v thought its the best  
solution (#280 wkd using that sloper),
but 3 years ago I tuned the tower and I used gamma match..the difference 
between 1/4 wave sloper and 
matched tower was 1 to 3 S...favouring the tower. Its easy to make and to try
