Hey Joe!

    There is a very good possibility that we will
become neighbors by years-end.  We are working on
relocating to the greater-Charleston area from FL.

    Is this ferrous slag rock common there?

    Sounds like a wonderful reflector for a NVIS
antenna!  :-)

It is the slag left over from smelting steel etc. So it has a high metal 
content. I did not know that some of it had such a high content untill this 
weekend when I was working on a truck and lost a screw.
 I tried to use a magnet to find it and ended up with rocks attached to the 
magnet... lol
I also found that in that area 147.27mhz is useless but that may have nothing 
to do with the driveway or a combination of the driveway and the cable tv 
system ...etc.

 As for the bands. I run everything from 10 to 80meters No antenna for 160 yet 
but I am working on one...
