Good research, too. As your research shows…
Well, thanks, but that wasn’t really research.. I just copied and pasted his words! Although previously I did spend ample time searching forums and the web for details of what happened with KenC. That whole story is finally pretty clear to me now.
Another option would be to abandon the roof top and go for a location where you can sit the transmitter right on the ground above a network of buried radials and use a small capacitive hat to pull the signal up the vertical radiator a bit.
