I created this web site to deal with all the little sheets of notebook paper, and sticky notes in books. This will be an on-going process, so please be patient.
The numbers I give in these articles are as close to being real as possible. But in all application you need to "adjust" for optimum performance. In all my years, I've never taken an antenna out of a box, or built one from a book, that has not had to be adjusted in the field.
The categories on the left and right contain links to the articles. Comments are welcomed but if you find something you like, try it. But also consider a small donation. A dollar or two will help to pay the hosting fees for the site. Your in kind donation will keep this site going.
NOTE: Effective 1/1/2016, the KT8APR Dstar repeater is not taking any new Registrations unless you are a local ham. Nets and special operations must be cleared by the trustees before you set up schedules.
