Haha,im using a longwire 75 ft long along side of my house using it for my scanner ,close to attic but outdoors
I use a simple dipole with balun set up for 11 meters fed by rg213 in the attic over the garage. I've done a lot of dx'ing with it and the only issue I've has is when the metal overhead door is open causing some reflection. My neighborhood won't allow me a tower so it's my only option. I purchased a radiowavz double bazooka to replace it some time back because it was highly recommended. So when I received it I put the probes on it and shows to be shorted so I was afraid to put power to it. I got busy with life and it's been too long to send it back now....
There is nothing wrong with your Bazooka Antenna. The antenna is designed so the outer braid connects to the coax like a conventional dipole, and the ends are connected to the center conductor, thus there is a short DC circuit. Just google a Bazooka antenna and look for an image/picture, and you will see what I mean.
