Pretty funny -- I wasn't sure what Tom meant by a "Marconi", so I went to
the ARRL Antenna Book to look it up, and the only reference in the index
was to the guy who did those early experiments -- *that* Marconi. ON4UN's
book had no index reference to Marconi at all.|
From context, I infer that Tom is talking about base-feeding one mobile whip, as originally intended, and placing it over a good ground plane. Correct? In that case, wouldn't another, more efficient mobile antenna be a better choice? I used a Hustler mobile whip in a garden apartment back in the 70's, and while it worked, I never had really good feelings about the resonator, since it got warm with only 100 watts CW.
