Hi Terry, 
I built an 8ft x 12ft "chicken wire" partition across my garage with 2x4s to
separate me and the controls from the coil. (MUCH cheaper than window screen. I
then lined the ceiling and walls on the "business side"  of the partition with
the same wire and tied it all to a second RF ground. This required drilling a
hole in the slab near the partition and pounding in a 6ft rod with just enough
left above ground for the 2ft battery cable to hook to the screen. ( attach
cable before mushrooming end of rod with sledge hammer) ;-)
