to get together for coffee or whatever, I should be thoroughly into radio

someone would like to get together, contact me via E-mail direct and
give me the time and place. Hopefully all reports on wx are sunny es warm

R7 vs Dx-77 vs Gap vs Butternut:

To all those who threw there 2 cents in, I thank you. 
Now comes the hard part, of putting something together
that makes since!  I'll have a short summery in a few
days, and also will give a quick report about the article
from England.

Several of you have asked for a copy of that article, but
I don't know about getting permission to do so.  Most of
the pages discuss the construction of each antenna which 
really doesn't need to be gone over so I'll just give the
highlights and full credit.

As a final comment I have a very small lot to work with,
about 130' by 50' of which sits a house and a garage which 
does make for good supports.  My actual area for ground 
mounted verticals is about 50' by 50' or about 2500 sq ft.
Local friends told me I was crazy for takeing down my tower      
but that is another story.

So my main antenna is a ground mounted Butternut HF6V with a
40 mtr windom at 40'.

So now I've come out of the closet Hi!

Hello to all:

I have one question about the Collins 30L1 Amp.
Does it works on WARC bands ???  I know that a few others amps
(old ones) we can use on WARC bands ( 24 Mhz on 28 Mhz - 18 Mhz
on 21 Mhz and 10 Mhz on 7 Mhz). What about the 30L1 ???
Thanks in advance for that info. Best regards from Brazil.
