Getting the antenna as high as is practicable is the way to go on HF, once it's up the ladder line should fall straight down. If you're operating position is on the second or third floor and you're antenna is above you, let the ladder line droop downward, and toward your operating position. That type of antennas I believe requires a certain amount of coax connected to it. That can be coiled, but not the ladder line.

Except in times of declared emergency, Amateur Radio should be fun! If it's not, you must be doing something wrong!
I don't answer to "contact."
