Wow, near salt water ... sigh.

I rented a room when at the seminary that overlooked
a bay.  Junk wire slung in the trees, fed by junk
75 ohm tv coax, and a Heath SB-102 ... if I heard it
I could work it!

You won't have to work too hard to get the low ohms
the power company and lightning seek!

You may want to think about checking your ground rod
annually if there is salt in the groundwater ... in
case you get serious corrosion.

What a great location for a vertical!


Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
