    Homer, your homebrew ingenuity never fails to impress. The commode flange is genius.

    Hello All: Yeah thats Radio enthusiasts at its best. Is the red wire the input?
    That coil looks like it came out of a commercial big boy transmitter.

    The first Interceptor 10K 5/8 was a heavily modified Maco V5/8 antenna. It looked way different but worked great.

    The red wire is the tap wire from the coax center conductor.
    The coil I spun myself.
