Hope to see you in the CQ WPX Contest this weekend.
I will be operating "DM5P".
A new paradigm for building antennas!
"Modern Antennas" is the title of a new chapter I am currently writing for my web site.
I find it frustrating that my latest copy of the ARRL HANDBOOK and the ARRL ANTENNA BOOK both still show the same old antenna construction pictures that they were showing when I got my first license, 50 years ago.
My offer to QST Magazine to write an article on this topic was rejected with the following:
- They will not publish an article written by me because I work for an antenna company.
I understand the need for keeping advertising out of the article content, but I see no reason to bar anyone from contributing neutral content.
Alas, my only recourse is to publish my ideas here on my own web site.
I promise to keep it brand neutral as much as possible, and will show other sources of this material (in addition to our company) whenever possible.
Events I am attending this year:
- HAM RADIO 2013 in Friedrichshafen, Germany
- National Ham Fest in Nottinghamshire, England
