[TowerTalk] Balun on a vertical

Or, even on a vertical with elevated radials, if there are "enough"
radials, does it really matter if the feedline acts as just one more

On my 40m vert, there are about 20 elevated radials, about 10'
above ground, and the feedline also comes out at about the 10'
level.  Since the feedline is about 200' long, is feedline radiation
really an issue in this case?
