Re: Pray that all is well in the Central US

I think Johnny is stiving for that new fangled radiation... "U-formed" radiation... 
or... maybe a new antenna design.. after the "C" pole type... this is an inverted "U"... 
now the question is.. where is and how is.. he going to feed it? 

Good Luck with it, Johnny.... bet you were just sitting around worrying about what to do next too... 
(that's my luck... )

Have a great day,

Ohhhhhh OUCH!!!!! Sorry Johnny, buttttt now you have "varied" radiation, instead of the common old vanilla Vertical or Horizontal!

I feel your pain, man!

Do you ever have spring or summer up there?  It's been cold in  Michigan, longer than we are accustomed and I have been in he Traverse City area 42 years.  There was an elderly visitor in church with shorts on and I had my long johns on....... In the same pew.  I hope he has a closer tie to the weatherman up above than I do.


Love my MTR (Dale built it)

Boomers predicted here all day. 
Feed lines unhooked, no storms at the moment, but it looks like the sky could fall at any time.

Lots of boomers around the Four State area.  I'm unhooked, and I'm sure many others are also.  I also employ a high value non inductive resistor across the feed line to gnd to help with static buildup, it's never unhooked.

Looks like you;re gettign some snow Dale.
