Received the following from Nathan, NW3Z:

"Thanks... I forwarded the warning to NOT USE EZNEC for the antenna!

Could you do me a favor and post a reply cautioning people that there 
are a lot of very complex interactions with the antenna that can only 
really be modeled with a full NEC4 model.... and even then there are 
some issues.  Recommend ONLY building to the May 1998 QST article.... 
we know that one works!"

>Hello all,
