- Mark, good suggestion, let's plan for a bunch of possibilities. To get the ball rolling I will install ropes tomorrow at 1PM. I will install so the center falls over the entry point at least 40 feet in the air. The goal will be to have the ladder line terminate overhead.

70' of coax. Yes, come to think of it that length is about what I remember.
With seventy feet we can get away from the home and have some options on
trees. And I'm sure that Jean has no coax at her home.
Since it is HF we can use smaller diameter coax without worrying about loss.
I have PL-259s in stock and the antenna likely takes one and the rig will
Netscape. Just the Net You Need.
- I will bring along fifty feet or so of RG-8U, from Radio Shack. Not the
world's greatest stuff but I might work for a while. And I'm trying to wean
myself from this tiny coax.
This was feeding my G5RV and Linda just got a QSL card from South Cook
Islands using an antenna feed with this stuff. Might work?
I'll also have the PL-259 for each end, although only one end is so
See you 1300 local there.
Please visit your calender Right Now and add August 19 for the Founders'
Picnic at the MAARC clubhouse. We will feature a pig roast, lots of old
photographs and video, a special presentation, a Special Event station
putting W8ZHO on the air, a raffle and 50/50 drawing, lots of fun games,
ants, meet a charter member of the club, and have a great time.
We'll eat around noon but the fun starts before then and runs later, too.
Our MAARC is over seventy years old, has been affiliated with the ARRL
for sixty-five years, has been incorporated for fifty years, and has
Elmered tons of hams, operated tons of hours, has welcomed lots of
neighborhood hams, and has been active and involved in amateur radio in
our community for quite a few years.
YOU are invited to attend, enjoy, and celebrate this accomplishment.
