Anyone by chance have an easier to accomplish idea other than one I  
remember being suggested to someone else with a similar problem -  
fishing a wire through a hole near the center of the boom and letting  
it hang out the end.  I can watch the SWR on my 40 meter antenna go  
from 1.2/1 to 2.0/1 just by turning the rotatable 40m Yagi or the 20m  
Yagi which is about 175 feet away and 65 feet lower.  Boom is 65 feet  
and elements are insulated.

Lesson learned on boom lengths...

I would prefer to fix it with the least amount of work.  I can  
probably do the wire thing on one side but not the other due to an  
weight-balance obstruction.  Hate to have about 15 feet of wire  
hanging out if the back of the boom.

Thanks...Stan, K5GO
