I have been an amateur radio operator for about 41 years.
In real life I managed a small motion picture film lab in Hollywood. I've been a fireman, a teacher of English in Okinawa, a personal computer tutor.
I am an Advanced Class Ham radio operator using my originally issued callsign WB6EEQ. I have operated for extended periods of time from Okinawa (KR6FX & KR6OP), Texas (K5VXG), and Mississippi (K5TYP).
While in the Air Force, I was a Manual Morse Radio Intercept Operator.

First of all, a diesel generator would use a huge amount of air and a cooling system without air would be gigantic. Time to think solar power. Yes, radio waves propagate very easily through space, and
Compared to a lot of other Hams, I would not be a very interesting interview. I live in rural Placer County and am not currently active in local Ham activities. There are Hams out there that are incredibly
Well, Austin, I'm not exactly a TOP ham radio expert, and I'm in Northern California and you're down in So Cal. This link will hook you up with thousands of Hams in your area... https://www.arrllax
The dangling reference was just to illustrate a point. Not suggesting that you dangle your antenna. Congratulations on your grounding efforts. Yeah, I understand that a counterpoise has higher voltage
I think you're talking about an "end fed zepp" which I have never used. They must work without a counterpoise because they were first used on zeppelins, dangling in the air. I've read articles that
