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

Special thanks to:

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.
