    My wife helped me install a cubical quad antenna back in 1975.

    But then she is an equal in the shack. She's been licensed WB4YPD since 1977.

    It's not just the antenna. It's not just the hot rod in the garage. It's about time, money, and control of such things.

    Some women view anything which allows the man an enjoyable escape from everyday life as a threat to that control. It's doubly unacceptable to them when the man's hobby has an influence on any income which she sees as hers.

    The past 40 years of "equal rights" have been an exercise in control. Women want control over the money, control over sex, control over what the man can do, and when. They want control over "their bodies," and the man to have zero say in that. They want control of what happens to everything if a divorce takes place. They even want control over anything posted by strangers on the internet.

    There are women who are not obsessed with controlling the lives of men. These are the good ones.

    A relationship is not about anyone controlling anything. Man or Woman. The fact that woman are taking back control says a lot about the men who had all the control in the first place and are now upset they have lost it. Power dynamics are not how to live a happy life or have healthy relationships. Essentially the opposite of what you said is men want control over money, sex, womens bodies, and the man can do what he wants when he wants. Sounds a lot like how the Taliban treats women to me and there is not a woman in any modern society who wants to put up with that crap, nor be 1950's Betty home maker who does what she is told.

    My post was not aimed at you OM. Just a general comment. Didn't mean for it to be taken personally.

    A man who wants to have an antenna is not a member of the Taliban, nor is he responsible for any past transgressions of other men.

    Relationships are about balance and mutual respect.

    Men have no need to apologize for such expectations.

    Ah, it's easy to keep it going strong and healthy.

    Our agreement (OM and XYL) is I'm in charge of everything above 20 feet and she is in charge of all the stuff below that.

    Antennas, towers etc. don't bother her at all, as her eight bazillion plants, flowers, trees and such don't bother me at all. Even though some make me sneeze.

    Achoo.
