I have an idea..one that would serve both antenna peaking and field strength indication.
Place tuned detector/LED indicators at 1 meter intervals all around the antenna structure so that they spread away in a circle pattern from the antenna in the center. All LED’s within the so called “200” foot by the book range can be green, and a few after that can be yellow, and then a super duper bright fat RED LED on the outer rim ring.
Tune for maximum illumination of the sensor circle and most distant ring of sensor LED’s while keeping the fat RED one from lighting up. Although at that distance, that fat RED one might be flickering on its own from random spectrum junk!
Such a setup would also make a neat night time display!
