Hi L.B.  
A few weeks ago, someone posted a query about using a coiled coaxial 
choke with an A-3 antenna.  It was about the proximity of the coil to the 
boom of the antenna.  Someone else asked what would happen if you just 
wrapped the coax around the boom in a big choke coil.  There was never an 
answer to that question posted.  I wonder if you have ever, or could 
model something like that and find out what would happen.  It seems like 
that would be a good way to keep it from flopping around in the wind.  I 
just would like to know how that would work.  73 and I enjoy ur web-site.
