HI Pat et All,

I 'googled' the Tesla Amateur Radio Club and didn't get a hit.  I 
found the Tesla Radio Club
located in NJ, but no pictures?

can you give me a link?

The Tesla Amateur Radio club guys, with a web presence, and 
incredible antenna farm pictures,
could probably offer first hand experience on the niceties of a 
swamp, or slough based HF station.
Google Tesla Amateur Radio Club for a picture portfolio of their 
salty swamp station.
Those fortunate enough to be able to set up, or inherit antenna farms 
in water, swamps, or expecially salt water environments, will no 
doubt tell of their paradigm shifts of experiencing band openings, 
and other performance metrics unknown to most Ham HF operators.
Here is a picture of an antenna farm in New Jersey, the former WOO, 
Ocean Gate antenna farm, in New Jersey.  Must be absolute killer 
performance.  But must be agonizingly intensive in antenna 

All the best,
Pat Barthelow
