Dang! Don't 'cha you just love what science brings to our everyday table.
Sixty years of hamming and I never knew my old eyeballing of my yagi's were
so imprecise, ashamed! Must be way I couldn't break some of the east coast
curtain pileups from time to time.
I will start paying attention to the walkers and their dogs down in the
village. Suspect I will have to be fast though if I want to get a good
bearing from a local dog (I have a cat but think they are more direction
aligned to the direction of the kitty litter box). Perhaps someone has some
information on that. Hope the ladies don't think I'm bit daft sneaking up
behind their pooches.
Will try the solar noon trick when we see some sun next Spring.
What a great site for information.
Hope Santa brought what you all wanted.

Since about every subject comes around twice a year, I'll repeat the north
finding method reported six months ago, without cell phones, stars, and
