Find here a compendium of thoughts, projects, and experiences that I have chronicled over the years. I’ve written with the hope I would not waste the reader’s time, and most of my posts are timeless, not particularly reflecting current events of the day. Use the category menu above, or the SIDE BAR with a Search box, the recent post list, category selector box or tag cloud below to navigate the site. I touch on a lot of topics, from Beekeeping to Economics, from Amateur Radio to Gardening. Enjoy, and please leave a comment if you so desire!
Winter time is when the low frequency ham bands come to life. They like the dark of night. But they also require rather large antennas, especially for the “top band”, 160 meters. Here I discuss Big Wires – A 160 / 80 / 40 Meter Multi-band Antenna where I look at what was required to field an effective wire for the low bands.
