    Well unless a huge wireless company is paying me it is a hobby.
    Yes paper is cheaper. Math is fun, for me. But I have spent years modeling RF. More fun to build it and test it. IF you understand the math you get what you expect. Most times.
    Sit on my hands? I have worked 50-60-80 hour weeks building and maintaining the best wireless network in the south! As measured by my peers and independent testing.
    But you see social networks are a waste of time! Why? Because everyone is an expert and a critic!
    On another note. Harry was a great guy. I had the pleasure of photographing him years ago.

    Another thing that is only a hobby. It stopped being fun when Iwas paid.

    I enjoyed this video. I like videos that share concepts while also being hands-on and practical.

    Strong work, James. Keep going!

    If I am not mistaken, that particular scene was at the beginning of one of their movies, not the regular series. And it was pure classic, in those early years, AW was a genius almost by accident.

    Is this the same as a "Bowtie"?

    If you mean the antenna I built - yes, "bowtie" is a good description.

    Love your picture: If it moves and should not, use duct tape. If it should move and does not, use WD-40. The only tools needed! :)
