John and Armin,

I read with interest the N6LF article that tells of using a metal roof 
about 35 by 60 feet as the lower "disk".  My new radio shack will be in a 
barn that has a metal roof a bit smaller than this, but I'm willing to try 
it out.  I have trees off one end of the roof peak, and may have to either 
put up a support for the other end, or let it slope.

Has anyone else used a metal roof this way?
