de Jungle Telegraph,
Thanks Jay, you can change it anytime my friend, preferably before the 30th April.

I'd love to help but the distance is a problem....and the money...
I say Dick! The only difference between men and boys, is the cost of their toys!

Granddaughter graduating? Gosh! you must be older than most!
There's a thought Jay? Some sorta award for working guys that are over, say 75? Perhaps
even adding ages together of those over 70...Call it the 300 year award...you only
have to work 4 guys over 75 or 5 guys over 60...or 2 at 150!!
Second thoughts...it might encourage them too much...

Did you hear about the CB'er who thought he would make use of the local power distribution
system for an antenna. He reckoned that with all that wire around the country, who
would need an amplifier?
Made up a lead with a mains plug on one end, and a PL259 on the other!
Told me later that electricity is only smoke in a tube...
It came out of his rig after a very short while! Said something about a mismatch
50 ohms into 60 cycles...

See ya'll 73s Duncan

Jay,
I was planning on Dayton this year, but we have a granddaughter who graduates from high school that same weekend.  So, to keep peace I cancelled dayton.  I really was wanting to meet all you crazy people who use rotatable verticals, etc.  But, my XYL told me to go ahead and order a new FT-100D since I was planning on buying one in Dayton.  After I checked to see if I was in the right house, I placed the order and have been having a lot of fun with it.  Not a bad trade off, was it?  See you in 2003 for sure.  I don't care who is graduating.

Re: Raising the "F" layer?

Bernie,

Thats a wonderful solution. Submit that to QST for publication under the

Tom,

I've come up with a solution to this problem.
I'm now feeding my vertical with 300 ohm ladder line, and impedance
matching
is not a problem, because the 50 ohm feedpoint impedance goes into 300 an
even number of times, so matching is not needed. I use one conductor of
the
ladder line for transmit and the other conductor for receive. Pretty
slick,
eh ?

Hi Bernie,

One important enhancement that has been neglected. Examine your coax
to
determine the design characteristics. Should the lettering on the coax
read from the radio to the direction of the antenna, then it is of the
transmitting variety .... lettering reading from the antenna down to
the
radio would be the receiving variety ..
although you may use one cable for both functions ... much better to use
one
of each design in parallel to optomize both your transmit and receive
capabilites. There is a down side to this ... It is harder to twist
cables in parallel... you may need a surplus prop pitch motor!

Re: Velocity factor

Ken,

What if you ran your coax straight up through the chimney, then there would
be no sharp bends.
Hope this helps.

When performing all those enhancements with coax and fittings, don't
forget to avoid sharp turns in the coax. I had a sharp turn where the
coax leaves the house, and finally noticed a small hole on the outside of
the bend. I guess with that near-speed-of-light RF velocity, some of the
RF could not make the turn at that speed and exited the coax right into
the basement air. That could explain my poor showing in the last contest.

Hello Gang,

On a little more serious note, I would like to Thank each and every one of
the 070 Group for being the great bunch of people that you are.
On this list we are able to have fun with each other without fear of being
flamed, or some grumpy person complaining about getting a few too many
e-mails that don't conform to their way of thinking. I subscribe to several
lists, and it seems like most of them always have some kind of a conflict or
disagreement going on, but you don't find that with the 070 club. It's nice
to find a little piece of the internet that is still enjoyable.
  Again, Thanks to everyone for letting this list be what our hobby is
supposed to be, FUN !!
