Re sunspots....actually...the last four cycles were pretty good on average...so I wouldn't be too concerned.  We are seeing a rather long minimum period, but that isn't necessarily unusual either.  Worst case....we can enjoy enhanced conditions on the lower frequencies.

Jim - If it works I'm all for it!

I haven't strung the 160 wire yet - but I have bored two holes in the 
foundation.  One for the ground, the other for the 1/4" copper wire 
antenna to come off the BC-939 antenna coupler for the BC-610.

That ought to make easy work for a 160 solution here.  Otherwise I'd 
have to do some "strange" cobbling of things.  The property isn't
enough!  The neighbor across the street isn't too keen about letting me 
tie off to his flagpole! <BG>
