I've been a ham off and on since 1958. I've been off the air for most of the last 15 years due to working, raising kids and living with CC&R's. Now, we just bought a home on 1.5 acres about 3 miles inland from the Pacific. The ham shack is at about 1000 feet elevation with a clear shot to the west and north. There are some low hills to the east and south. There are no restrictions so I'm looking for suggestions for antennas. I like the 15 & 40 meter bands, at least to start but don't really want a big tower. And it would be fun to try to make an antenna that's not a wire sloper like the kind I've had to make forever. I'be been reading a little about the Beverage antenna but with the moderate slope I don't know how it would work.
Also I wanted to add a base station and mobile so I could get my wife to get a novice license. I don't know where to start on this one. I think the San Diego area here has lots of repeaters but don't even know how to get started.
I'm looking for Beta testers for my DxBeacon monitor for the PocketPC 2002. If you're interested, email to firstname.lastname@example.org
