My Force 12 Magnum 2/3 (2 el on 80 and 3 on 40) is about ready to go 
up.  The tuning is the last major hurdle, which I intend to tackle 
this weekend.

I need default dimensions for the 80 m Reflector jumpers.  My repeated
requests to Force 12 have gone unanswered, so I'm hoping there's 
someone on the Reflector who might know.

I also want to move the Phone and CW frequencies closer together (I 
don't need coverage above 3800 kHz).  Any ideas about the amount of 
expansion required on the Phone/CW coils?

Finally, does anyone know whether re-tuning is required for the 
parasitic elements (director and reflector) if I decide to elevate 
the driven element into a Zagi configuration, as Tom calls it?  How 
much?  The 40 m portion is physically identical to the Magnum 340, 
except that the driven element is mounted on the mast above the 
boom, rather than on the boom itself.
