This 'discussion' became unreasonable the moment some pathetic lamer decided they had nothing better to do then go poking around into what antenna the OP uses and then post that info here, followed by yet another loser who felt compelled to give us a homesnap link of said property.
Truly it makes me want to move and then renew with a PO Box address.
I went hunting for a definition of QRP...I've YET to come across anything other than it's 5 watts or less power at the transmitter output and in fact I've come across a presentation on (I think) the New Jersey Club site that makes it pretty clear that not only are directive antennas ok, they are highly desirable. (gasp!)
No I'm not distraught, I'm angry, attacking his antenna (which looks pretty homebrew to me, makes me wonder if the attack dogs aren't just jealous cause they can't make one) and posting that crap was the height of petty lameness and gross stupidity.
And it's ECHO ECHO VICTOR.
