The Up side to that Homer is you get to cram more projects into the day......the real hard part is getting them finished LOL
Did you have a look at the links to the loop antenna I had posted?
It was a fun project to play with.
I thought that WD8PUO had a nice home brew loop going with the sliding "Piston type" match, another way to tune the antenna, and they work well for the size, here is a quote from KR1ST`s website:
I'm a QRP operator and never use more than 5 Watts (SSB). With the antenna in the living room and at this power level I've been able to work Europe, Asiatic Russia, the Caribbean, South America, North America, and West Africa. I have been able to work over 80 countries with only 5 Watt SSB and this antenna.
They make fun portable antennas for rigs like the Yaesu FT
857/897 or the New Elecraft KX3.
NASA/SOHO When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.
