Perhaps the easiest way (if you have an antenna analyzer or access to one) is to check the impedance at the antenna using an antenna analyzer. That will tell you which way to go in modifying the turns ratio. I just put a beverage antenna together, and the analyzer was very helpful in assembling the transformer. I used my Autek analyzer - and it's probably the best investment I've made to be sure every watt I own gets to the antenna and then on to the other guy's radio. ;-)

I recently put up a K6STI loop for 80m. It's about 8 feet off the ground and built according to the plans in the Sep. 95 issue of QST. It's 21 feet on each side and I used 450 ladder (window) line and a 77 mix ferrite bead for the transformer.
