Old Hams????? Well not all old hams are scrooges. I was using the SWAN 700CX for a 75 meter rag chew to a couple of old timers in SC one evening. The SWAN brand brought up the subject of the Siltronix 1011B and the CB discussion was on. Had blast talking to those old timers, Both ran old Silkies in their younger days, Some OP recorded my transmission and kept re transmitting in on the freq but oh well. Run the antenna you have, enjoy how it works, and when on the ham bands just say it is a 4 element yagi. Don't need to describe it as a moon raker or maco etc etc. unless you just want to. Many amateurs here in N FL rag chew on 11 meters. If we are on a ham band and run across each other we just say go to the other band and we know to meet up on 11 meters. It is just radio and it should be fun.
