You're funnin' us, right? That's like buying out American Airlines, Boeing, and Lockheed, and merging them into a single organization because you want to visit your sister in Wichita next month and your car is almost out of gas. Not to mention that, of all the details of an antenna, the feedpoint location is least likely to affect its efficiency (although it can affect the efficiency of the feedline quite strongly). Feedpoint location will affect other things, but typically one wouldn't expect efficiency to be a major one of those things.

Welcome aboard. I don't know if people who live in trailers are smart enough to answer your question. But I guess we'll find out.

Most of my antenna designs came out of a book and all I had to do was follow the directions.
