Contact Bruce K1FZ. k1fz. He seems to be knowledgable on 160 bogs  A bog that is on the ground or around a foot or less 
above ground can't be very long. Bruce has told me max length is about 150ft. 
Any longer than around 150 and it will become capacative. He also buids 
matching xfmrs for BOG's. It is a 300ohm matching xfmr. I believe long 
beverages are higher 
that 400+ ohms.

I plan on trying 2 myself soon.
