Look at the picture W6NBC uploaded.

That should help you see the feed point better.

Thanks Lyndel, I can see the photo but the feed point is still not clear to me. I cannot see around the corner to see how the coax is connected. I did order a SWR meter so that should help me tune it.

I built one but I cannot get it to work very well. I cannot get it to raise the repeater and even my rubber ducky can do that. I am going to order a SWR meter. When building, I even made a jig to keep everything square and level. I have something wrong but I do not know what.

One question I have in on the feed. I did not see exactly how the feed is wired in the photos. Do I take the center (signal) line of the coax and connect to both? And then what do I do with the coax shield?

Thank you! I was having a hard time too.
