Gosh---and no offence meant here, believe me---but I sure am glad that I got
active on the band FIRST, and BEFORE I read your "rant"...! Hi Hi
Back before I knew any better & when I started to get semi-serious about Top
Band DX'ing in the 80's, I thought that I was the proverbial "cock of the
walk", living on a suburban lot with my inverted "L", and two---count 'em,
TWO!---counterpoise ground wires. I sure had fun, alright, despite my
ignorance---and I worked a bit of long-haul stuff on the band, too...
Sometimes a bit of newbie enthusiasm can (almost!) match-up favourably with
engineering realities...or has anyone ever tried telling a bumblebee that,
scientifically, it is NOT supposed to be able to fly...?! : >)
