As there has been some discussion on the merits of different kinds of top
loading I have performed some computer simulation, using the Antenna
Optimizer program by Brian Beezley, K6STI, which is similar to EZNEC.

1. No top load
Efficiency: 10.8%
2. One horizontal top load wire of 5 m
 Efficiency: 12.5%
4. One horizontal top loading wire of 10 m
Efficiency: 11.9%

6. One horizontal top loading wire of 20 m
Efficiency: 10.0%

Dick,

There's something wrong here isn't there?. You have a reducing efficiency for increasing top load length. Surely that can't be right.
