Hi Folks....

The vertical portion of my L goes up to 66' with the additional 68' going 
horizontally.  I have 22 radials underneath it. They range from 20' to 68' in 
length.  It is fed via a 1:1 current balun at the feedpoint with 75' of 
BuryFlex 50 ohm coax.  Based on the lowest SWR of 1.6:1, and NOT X=0, the 
resonance is 1.803 MHz.  I have the impedance "down" to 62 ohms.

Although I have worked 78 entities in a very short period of time, it just 
doesn't seem like this thing is playing very well.  The vertical portion is 
about 3' to 4' from the pine tree.  


73, Merry Christmas and HNY...............John K4NP
