Thanks Larry...  while reviewing my options I came across a "coaxial" 
antenna I can construct from RG8X (or larger, but heavier) and if I 
could use the 8x on down to the shack it would be much easier.  I'm sure 
the 8x will withstand the wattage, but I don't want to have as much loss 
in it as I do with the vertical I am trying to replace.

I appreciate your comments.
