Search the Topband Archives for Guy Olinger's posts containg BOG. IMO, what
he has shared here is as accurate as anyone's.

Guy posted a recent thread that stated that a BOG is not a Beverage. While
some took issue with that, he was really making some points about the major
differences and issues with laying an elevated Beverage on the ground.

Unless you love trial-and-error, then read his stuff if you want to succeed
at hearing weak signals.

I'm *not* saying that Guy is the only one. Jerry K4SAV (and others whose
names escape me today) should be studied also.
