Rick,

I read K5ACL's article last night.  I had an old 80 meter mobile antenna my dad bought,
and thought I'd give it a go.

 I put the  antenna on the hallway floor, with a small chunk of coax running into the shack to my antenna analyzer. After adding abt 20' of flexweave to the whip, I ended up with: 1.865 Mhz with an SWR=1.94.

I will take it outside tomorrow and set it up, things will change.

BTW the temperature in S.E. Washington State today was 61 and sunny skies.

73,
