    Dumb? I dunno about that. Sure, I've always assumed the trees around my wire antenna affected my signal. But by how much? I thought it did a pretty good job of quantifying that. Did it need a cover blurb? Maybe not, but so what?

    Yeah, it kinda left me scratching my head. I thought maybe there was a page missing.

    I must say you're very good in working art editing programs, Charlie. Do you use Corel PhotoImpact??

    I use "Gimp". I use it with Linux and Windows (which I still call DOS sometimes).

    My first impression of that article was that it was severely edited to make more room for more useless stuff.

    The real QST and CQ had articles in the late 40's and 50's on trees, both for losses and also to use as antennas.

    And why I dropped ARRL membership... the build and tech stories have become dumbed down badly... I remember an article in 1978 or 1978 on how to build a repeater ID using a diode matrix to code the call sign. Since I was helping assemble a repeater at the time I built it in my high school electronics lab(pretty sure it was 1978..., might have been 1977...). Now the build articles ares stupid, nothing challenging...
