    Resistors? Heck, I'd skip those completely and terminate them with old Las Vegas neon signs!

    Note to visitors, do not insert quarters into the machines. :eek:

    No worries; they're all set up for dollar bills now.

    To put on the corner of a roof, for a short multibanded antenna.

    I should have known it had something to do with one of your roofs, Iceman . Even I use my mobile antenna mounted on a fence post instead of my car; I really shouldn't be giving you a hard time about this. If done well, shortened verticals shine almost as well as full-sized ones.

    Top-loading and a great radial field make up most of the difference in this "fractional equation."
