[quote=12vman]I am curious.. What changes will be made in the radiation pattern when the coil is moved to the center of the radiator? (Assuming a good ground scenario)[/quote]This can be seen in the NEC-2 study I posted here a few minutes ago (link repeated below).
The shape of the pattern is very nearly the same for the center-loaded antenna as the base-loaded antenna in my models, but except towards the zenith, the absolute gains of each are different.
