Jerry, Tom, N4TL, and I are separated by about the same distance as you and your neighbor. We're both contesters and DX'ers. We do have some differences, though; Tom prefers SSB where I prefer CW. Th

Author: (
Date: Wed, 9 Oct 2002 19:55:43 EDT
Any suggestions on suppressing rfi to a HAM II or TT control box would be appreciated. The control boxes are similar in circuitry, so I imagine what's good for one is good for the other. 73, Bert N4C

I have enjoyed working with ELNEC and EZNEC and modeled my favorite wire antenna, a full-wave antenna, fed a quarter-wave from one end. In free space it's a clover leaf, and above real ground it's go

Author: (
Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2002 09:20:02 EDT
Well, it just occurred to me that if the feedline were not isolated from the antenna, such as feeding the OCF with a straight wire (like one version of the old Windom), or using balanced wire feedlin

Author: (
Date: Wed, 13 Mar 2002 16:07:23 EST
Seldom mentioned nowadays is the use of a grid-dip meter to measure the value of an inductor. Using a known capacitance in parallel with the inductor, you loosely couple the grid dip meter to the coi

On the basis of N0OEL's input, I upgraded to AOL's version 7.0. This posting is a test, proving (or not!) that it works, "as is". While I enjoy Tower Talk and other reflectors, I seldom put my two ce

Author: (
Date: Tue, 3 Jul 2001 08:28:55 EDT
I suspect that eventually the bolt holes holding the sleeve and the mast will "worry", and you'll get more and more "slop" in the joints. You could delay the process by using hardened mast material a

The balun I was using for my D40 broke internally (I suspect the coax beads fractured for some unknown reason) and I need to replace it. I'd like some opinions: should I use a coaxial choke (10 turns

What's wrong with "frame ground"? Surely the 5-story building has a steel frame...and from what I've seen, the "pilings" are driven into the ground. So attach to this "frame ground" as close to the a
