I'm having difficulty visualizing this.  Do you have a wire running from 
your roof to ground?  Radials on the (big?) roof?  Or do you just 
connect the coax shield to the bottom of the tower and forget about any 
kind of ground?  Could you describe the "bit of wire" which provides 
some top loading?  I expect to soon have a C4-SXL on 9m of Rohn 25 on 
the roof and would be very interested in being able to use the structure 
on 80/160.
