I built one of these with some friends when I was 12 for Field Day. Very simple, pretty safe, and very cheap. Parts in total under $30. You'll find that's considerably cheaper than renting a cherry p

I have a pair of stiff trekking boots with steel rods in the sole. They allow the boot to flex, but keep it stiff enough to stand on a tower rung for a while. They also have deep tread and a heel not

Hi Chis, What type of ground do you have at your station (if any)? Mike N1TA So I haven an 80M loop I usually only get to use for sweepstakes every year, rest of the time the feed line is coiled up i

...but I suppose the question becomes how much MORE dx could you be working with a totally optimized situation? If you are comfortable never knowing the difference, lucky you. Because the alternative

BTW - no sarcasm was intended there. I really would like to think that at some point someone - somewhere - will make a program that is easier out of the box. But in the meantime, here are some operat

Well, it isn't a very good picture of it, but on further inspection, it looks like there is a third clamp on the second leg of the tower via an outrigger. But I did have to look twice. Nonetheless,

Yes, while the match, jelly, contact cement, etc. may work, they have an awful side effect. The tick will regurgitate toxins back into you when it is unable to breath or under stress. So, with these

I had thought that also. But if you grab it with the tweezers at the very surface of the skin, you actually prevent stuff from coming back out (see the CDC diagram). I was just outside looking at th

Heat slightly with a heat gun (or blow dryer) until it's pliable but not liquid and just "glob" it on there. Do it twice to be sure you have a good seal. More is not always better, much like solder.

Good question. I guess it might be to provide additional protection, but I can't imagine the hardware is anywhere near dependent on it. In fact, if applied improperly (trapping moisture), the wax mig

So all this time, we've been building as tall as local law will allow, and we're shorting ourselves? The inches...the precious inches! Mike N1TA The top flat sections are only 8 ft tall if my memory
