I use a small toroid as a current transformer, but it's on the ground side 
rather than the Ae lead.
Since the Marconi antenna, loading coil/variometer, and the ground radials are 
a series circuit,
it makes sense to do the measuring in the "cold" lead.  I use a similar 
arrangement to tune my
Tesla coils, which keeps the sensitive meters away from the discharges!
