> 1.  A two element Monsterette.  Similar to the current Monsterette but

> 2. The second antenna would be identical to the above Monsterette but

> A relay switchable linear  loaded wire to add use on 80/75 meters.  I
> haven't done the calculations but expect that the  range of the

> linear loaded wire?
> What do you all think?
