Right on Pete... I use a 24ft vertical fed with ladder line working against a 100ft of chain link fence, with it's own tuner as the noise antenna. The mfj brings an S9 grinding noise level on 40 down to an S2... More than 40db. The small amount of signal loss is easily made up by the rig's rx preamp. Works slick.

I found the main thing with the noise antenna - to get rid of noise, not create 
a directional system - is that the noise antenna should pick up the noise at 
least as well as the main antenna. This is true for any design I tried. It need 
not be identical to the main antenna.
