I would have taken you up on that! I thought I had done a good job constructing my first 40 meter dipole. But, I was getting very erratic SWR readings - especially when the wind was blowing. Frustrated, I called my Elmer and he came over to check it out. I learned that day of the importance of making good mechanical connections between the coax and the dipole and it needs to be soldered! So my first attempt as a teen was not very successful - but I learned a couple of valuable lessons.
