Hi All, at the risk of really showing some ignorance, a question:
If the choke is doing a good job and located at the feedpoint, isn't the  
common mode circuit quite short?
Seems that the common mode current is the cause of the feed point imbalance 
 rather than the imbalance causing the common mode current. Chicken first 
or egg  first?

and, VERY important, the electrical length of the common  mode circuit 
(that is, Vf approx =  0.99).
