1. Where can one get moderately sized egg insulators for breaking 3/16 EHS
and at what nominal cost each. The homongeous two fisted type are a bit of
an over kill. They need to be big enough to take the appropriate big grips
2. Has anyone any experience with tuning Sommer XP704 antennas. Mine has the
low VSWR point at close to 16.2 Mhz for 20 mtrs and 30.3 Mhz for 10 mtrs.
lengthening elements per the instructions did not move the resonance in
band. i have just established comms. with Alf Sommer but he is on vacation
in DL-land and e-mail is forwarded and a bit slow. Any help appreciated.
3. Per N4ZR's implication re technology source. In the case of carbon
fibre - that was invented by the British at the Royal Aeronautical
Establishment Farnborough around about 1963.
