Welcome Pauly. I just finished a DL antenna, lost the old one.
Now making a jumper to go between my LiPO model airplane batts and Anderson Power Poles. Should be a very good way to power the rigs., very light and plenty of capacity.
I love this radio stuff.
Back to the bench, Winter is too valuable to waste. cu there

Terry might chime in here and help me. The 5 minute 5 dollar EFW is a roll for Rat Shack speaker wire 50 long with one leg left attached but shortened to 25 ft. I dont know how but it works. I have been using the same
WAHR at Ozarkcon for years. I string it around the room from light fixtures pictures and sprinkler guards ha ha ha For the dummy load contest I run it through a dummy load first and use the rest for radiator.....
de Paul SEE U ALL there
End Fed Wave.... as in end fed full wave antenna?? Why? Because it doesn't need to be cut/spliced to use on lower band.. as in 160.
Have a great day,

OH yeah I fergot, some clean underware and overalls hi hi hi de Paul
Last night after dark I was cruising 3550 for SKCC contacts when I was called by YU4DX Manu in Serbia, He was 559 and gave me the same. I seldom work DX as I do not have enough patience. That was cool being called from
DX he needed my T for his C award. He got several others before the band folded up.
Will see U all in Branson in a few days. I have some gear a dummy load and my trusty 5 dollar 5 minute EFW packed up and ready.
CU on Thursday de Paul N0NBD
