Hello Rik,

Thanks  for  the  info Rik, appreciated, I am trying to keep the setup
looking  discrete  and  wonder  if  an  up  aloft  loading  coil might
compromise that, so will have a play with the coil on the ground, I am
finding  it fascinating trying to optimize the grounds and the aerial,
but  have  to  stay within bounds of not upsetting `er indoors and the
neighbours too much :(
