On the subject of helical antennas for VLF, I wonder if anyone 
knows anything about Tesla coils? I saw on TV some spectacular 
results using such coils to produce very high E fields, and I believe 
the field is high-frequency AC, so perhaps the same constructional 
technique could be used for an antenna, although if the voltages are 
as high as the ones I saw, there would be a need to build a large 
sphere on the top in order to reduce the corona.
