I have two questions:

o What is the ideal dimension for the centre conductor to exit the coaxial shield above the reflector? In Secretspy711’s second photo above, it looks like it exits half an inch or so above the reflector. Is this ideal?

o It is OK to drill a hole in the reflector through which to pass the coaxial feedline, directly under the start point of the coil? This would make it easy for me to place the VRX on the back of the antenna. I’d also like to drill holes for mounting other things, but I’m just wondering if drilling holes in the reflector effects things at all.
