I'm thinking of a BOG for this season's RX antenna, after becoming 
thoroughly disillusioned with my K9AY loop experiments.  Problem is, I 
can only get about 350 feet on the right azimuth (to Europe) and to 
continue to a full 580 feet or so, I would need to do a 20-degree dogleg 
to the right.  I'm wondering if anyone out there who has NEC-4 can 
advise on how this would affect the pattern and the terminating 
resistance.  My NEC-2 won't handle it, of course.
