Thanks for the info.
What power do you run?

I might be able to get 110 feet, maybe a little more
if I put the wire in the tree branches...insulated wire?

I have found that the RG214 coax can get real hot if I run
into an antenna that is not resonant...

I have the heath 2060a, although I hate to use it.
