At the expense of prolonging the balanced feed/balun threads, a question. With  
sloping, or bent vertical dipoles, should the dc grounded/shield side of the 
coax feed, withor without a balun. go to the lower side of the dipole? I've 
been feeding mine with parallel line back to a tuner  in the shack, thus 
avoiding the problem and it's been working very well. However, to get the 
airborne openwire out of sight I'm thinking of converting to the burried coax 
that's feeding all of my other antennas.
