It's good to know Ivy's still around, I hope she'll be
able to come back before too long. I tried calling her BBS when I arrived AB>back in the U.S. but it was apparently off- line.
I sympathise, I recently had some big old teeth taken
out (under a general anesthetic ;o) but recovered quickly. Here's wishing yo AB>a thorough and swift recovery!
in Illinois, USA and we seem to get many, many thunderstorms here - especial AB>of late. I would prefer an outdoor antenna, but I share your concern about AB>lightning. I suppose an indoor antenna is less conspicuous too which might AB>an advantage for some people.
I'm interested in an HF antenna (possibly 40m or 80m),
but it needs to be physically small and hopefully inexpensive. Does anyone AB>have any suggestions or observations?
By the way, I know what 2m is, but what's a "traffic net" ?
Although I couldn't afford one right now, that doesn't
sound an unreasonable price for a multi-band HF antenna. I might be able to AB>get away with something a bit more simple though, since I probably wouldn't AB>transmitting more than about 5W once I got my license and I would settle for AB>single band antenna. For the moment, even a receive-only
'aerial' would do. Thanks for the tip though, it's nice
to know that's out there.
