Mr Cox, All,
              That is a most useful piece of information:

Indeed. Now it would be most interesting to know if there is any 
frequency dependence in that figure. 3'/MV is close to a figure I've 
been using for some time to calculate a minimum secondary height for
a given maximum Vout I wish to run. 

Thank you,
