Congratulations, Jackie!  The bands have been a lot of fun lately--hope you enjoy being back on the air!   My main antenna right now for 40-12 is a 66' doublet fed with balanced line, only 30-40 feet up, and I've been working all around the world recently.  So you ought to be able to have a ball with your antenna!  73 and hope to work you soon!

Good job Jackie!!!

Always remember what the Novice book from the ARRL "Operating an Amateur Radio Station" said: Any antenna will work better than no antenna at all!


See you on 7030!

if you feed that dipole with ladderline and get a small MFJ tuner you will be SET for all bands, 40 and up.

Welcome back.  I just got back on the air after a 5 year hiatus.  Had to take down my R7 vertical (which was malfuntioning) to have a new roof installed.  Just finished fixing the antenna (mostly) and got it back up in September.  Getting my CW speed up and having fun.
