Nostalgia is so overrated! I operated a Flex 3000 recently. I was listening to some cw when the guy at the station 6 feet away from me, using an antenna on the same roof, keyed up 400 watts ssb. I was stunned as the sound in the phones changed, everything changed except for the cw! It was perfectly readable whether the other rig was key up or down. I'm not used to being treated that well by a radio. I've been abused by radios across the whole spectrum of tech from regen to triple conversion, I always thought that maybe they just didn't like me.

You think the Flex 3k is an improvement!  The direct sampling radios really shine in that area.

Brian - the advantage of the direct-sampling technique is that it's easier to make a good radio, and harder to make a bad one.

Bob

Not sure how old this message is but I recently saw the specs for a Lindsay vertical and if you would like a copy I could get you a copy

It is much better - seems to me - to train QRQ 40 wpm (or lower speed)  with ARRL exercises, regularly refreshed and archived at
http://www.arrl.org/40-wpm-code-archive
You get plain text at known speed, and are not dependent on some blue racer with a distorted fist that is just not present at the time you want to exercise in the lower part of the band and above that: is generally nor chewing the rag but making rubber stamp QSO's. or even worse cq-test 5nn tu

After all: When you passed away, all your proficiency is gone, be realistic it will be the near future, so better design and construct your own transmitter and receiver instead of buying commercial equipment. May be it still works for years after your SK. And the purpose of amateur radio service is not just making QSO's with commercial equipment, I thought.

It seems to me that the attorneys DID advise that they had a conflict of interest and didn't want to discuss the details with the OP. I don't think they violate any rules unless they agree to represent the ham at the same time that they are representing the city involved. If you expect an attorney to turn down paying clients in order to represent hams for free I think you won't have many volunteer councils to choose from.

Set the analyzer down then touch the connector.  If nothing changes, great. Otherwise a choke is in order for that antenna.

Like he said. The LED strips themselves cannot create any RFI, they are just passive components. Power them with an analog wall wart and there's nothing to create RFI. Power them with a "good" digital wall wart, and you may or may not have an RFI issue from that, which the strips will gladly broadcast.

If you put them on any kind of dimmer, as many people do, many of the dimmers are going to create RFI too.

I hear horror stories from every amateur using all types of antennas from stacked quad mono banders to simple Hexbeams. I still climb towers for a side line living.  Having used all the antennas available, I still prefer the StepperIR for the simple elegance and operational diversity. I have been a ham for over 55 years and remember beams made of 2X4's on wooden towers. A sky full of corroding aluminum is not maintenance free. I have no problem collecting $85 per hour for antenna work. Keep buying those complicated antenna designs. I need a new amplifier.

I'm finishing up a refurb job on a HQ-129-X. All the time I'm adjusting the tuning at the low and high ends of each band I'm thinking: boy, this would be a lot better in SDR, let some code jockey do all this work just once and never have to calibrate anything, yeah!! I used to suffer from Ham Radio Nostalgia Syndrome bigtime, I had a whole shed full of tube rigs stolen a few years ago, after operating the Flex I now feel like I was done a favor.
