Walt:

Colin mentioned TP's, not DU's. The bearing to Tokyo is 300 degrees from 
Victoria. Tokyo would then be 60 degress from the flag peak. A flag is only 
down about 3 to 4 dB at a 60 degree offset. So a North flag ought to work. 
Perhaps not very well, but certainly to a fair level.

But... why point it north? Might as well do what you do and point it more 
towards the TP DX.


Chuck

Think about it, Colin.  South is no where near the Pacific.  For that, you
are looking much more to the west, and great circle to Australia is
practically due west from our QTH.  It might work well for TA openings,
across the Pole.  For my QTH, my FLG 100 amplified loop is directed 270 deg
or so.  This is almost the only antenna that is regular for TPs.  The due
North corner fed loop rarely will have Asian signals on it, but not too
often.  But, it's also the only antenna I have for Europe.  73,...Walt
