Wow!  that was a prompt reply.. Thank You, It is too early  the 'morning
after '  here for me to work out what time you have but I guess you must be
mid evening yesterday.-ish. I'm not in weight training [ unless you count
"putting on too much weight ":-) ] so will assemble my new  pistol
cross-bow with associated  fishing reel/Nylon line in Sussex coastal
suburbia.  Not many Moose tho' I may be tempted to fire at a few B***
squirrels

It is far better to shoot halyards hopefully than to arrive with ready made
product  ....

I assume it matters not where you feed it

http://www.thepittsfieldinn.com/Bill/  gives some great detail on loop
construction.

mine is 40ft up, 200ft along, 40ft down and returns about 6ft back. The
connections are in a small box - mine has a 1nF cap (shd be 2) in series
with the inner of the thin coax to one side of the loop, other side of the
loop is connected to the outer of the coax, and the resonating cap to
bring
it to 137Khz across the loop (and defacto inner to outer of coax) is
around
13.5nF

its cheap - easyish and I used a 2.5 pound weight to throw it up the
silver
birch tree (Im in weight training!)
