    Ok, this is a long shot, but seeing DoctorAudio made me think of an old friend. His name is Lee and called himself DocAudio. Would your name be Lee?

    I don't think the inductor has to be at the very bottom.

    Possibly not the most efficient of radiators but seems to hold up well in our windy conditions.
    Appreciate any thoughts and advice you may have on the subject.
