GE all,

Tonight's topic on the 4SQRP DMR net was transmission lines, and it made me think of a tab I've had open in my browser for a long long time. It's an entertaining read:

Buried within the nice long fun story is a description of how to make your own open-wire line using enameled magnet wire, toothpick spreaders, and hot glue. The result is stealthy, cheap, and efficient. Looks like a good rainy-Saturday project, and I have every intention on giving it a try some day soon. Thought I should share the article!

Bill,

It took a good 15 minutes before I could get enough of your preamble to consider a reply worth a try.  After we made contact your signal came booming in for a minute or so then faded.

Thanks for your efforts, I hope that I'm showing some progress !

According to some current thought, Alfred Vail, Morse's assistant,
created the code and made the first key. Some are of the opinion that
it ought to be called "Vail Code", but that is likely too confusing
after 181 years. :-D
