Any suggestions on that?  I was moving it around manually, trying to find 
the "sweet spot".  I could hear the beacon, but faintly.

For one thing, I need to build up a LHCP couple-turn helix for a 
feed.  Perhaps in the next few days I can get that done...this really is 
fun stuff.

Sounds like your stuff is ready to go!  Thanks for sharing the 
details...good info for my archives.
