New Yahoo Group For Arizona: Southwest Buddipole Users Group (SWBUG) Antenna For Portable Operations. A bunch of Arizona hams have launched a Yahoo Group regarding the Buddipole/Buddistick owners and users of the BP antenna system for our unique SW environmental conditions here in Arizona and surrounding states. Heat, aridity, dust, sandstorms, wind, desert and mountain topography, upcoming hamfests, SOTAs (Summits On The Air) and get- togethers are potential topics. This is not a commercial group. We all are hams who are just happy and satisfied to use the lightweight Buddipole system for portable (backpackable, quick set-up for DX, NVIS, highly configurable for HF, VHF, and UHF) including ARES/RACES operations and have found considerable success. And we regional BP users will be pleased to travel to assist new owners with set-up and tuning. See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/<wbr>swbug/ .
