I don't have the antenna book, but I do have the LBDX'ing book here. Of
course, the recommended length there is 125 feet.
I have about 40 radials from 30 to 60 feet (used to be where one of my 40
meter verticals sat) and I added 3 more around 100 feet long. Will add more
as I get the wire ready. Kinda hard clomping around throught the boonies in
If anyone lives close to a vacuum cleaner repair shop, that is a good place
(can you say cheap--free) to pick up old power cords about 30 feet long. I
have about 20 of them and just started peeling the outer jackets off. Only
takes a few minutes to strip the outer jacket and unwind the wires. 73
