Many thanks to all for their valued comments on my enquiry about the above
antenna and for alternative suggestions regarding my predicament!

The location of the (now dismantled) 125 ft tower was ideal, in that, it
enabled me to erect a 260ft sloping doublet, even though I have pretty
limited space on my own property. The bearing and distance from my property
was such, that, the O/W feeders slipped down neatly between my property and
my neighbour's lot. This antenna gave me pretty good results on all bands.
Unfortunately, my neighbours fall into the "anti-antenna category" .. so I
will struggle to erect an effective antenna in its place ( My old ant. was
up in the air before these neighbours moved here, and are all deliriously
happy now that the tower is down!) ... So again, whatever I will be able to
hook into the ether will be a compromise, in order to cover all HF bands at
minimal cost, but WATCH THIS SPACE!!!
Thanks again, the ol' T/BAND Reflector is a VALUABLE source of
expertise,information and - just plain friendship ...
Good DX, health and happiness to you all.
