This is a subject that comes up fairly often.
Why?, Because we all use the information in our own antenna

Is it wire? Aluminum? A combination, dependent on the band or time
of the day?
Do you use a different antenna, by mode?
When you put up your antenna, what factors influenced your
Never too many antenna's!
