Hi Jozef -- well, I'm feeling dumb.  I never looked at the schematic before 
writing my previous message, but you're quite right.  So nothing to worry 
about.  It will be interesting to see what happens among my various 
antennas, all on the one tower, when the feedlines go from being all open 
to all grounded.  We'll find out, I guess.
