We never had a CW requirement. It was a Morse Code requirement. :-)

Nothing about fan dipoles, but they're investigating 43' verticals even as we speak.

Well, if they can explain the 43' Vertical, then the TAK Tenna must be next.  I understand you must explain the theory behind the TAK in the next pool of General Questions.

I want a Fan 43' verical antenna!

By the way, it is time to dust off this old joke again:
Who was the first radio amateur to pass a code test?

It was George Washington.  He did it while still a young lad.  His father asked one day, "Who chopped down my Cherry Tree?"

Young George replied, "I cannot tell a lie. I didit
Dahdah!"

I'm outa here!
