    Wait till the realization hits that you aren't in the city anymore. No more X down the road or the next subdivision over.

    My only complaint about small town living is the locals all wanting to be up in your business because you're the fresh meat. It goes away after a while, when there's a new kid in town.

    Gawd mate, I'm so envious. Relish it! :p

    Started experimenting with using ladder lines as antennas.

    Initial results are surprisingly promising. :cool:

    Matt,
    Are you terminating the ends of the ladder line, or leaving them unconnected? Asking for a friend or two. :D

    40 meters in the picture?

    Yes, terminating one end, feeding the other. It doesn't have to be terminated, but in the model, and in the early data, that makes it directional.

    I have a web article started for it, but I'm still gathering data.
    Of course. ;)
    Right now, I'm concentrating on 40m and 80m. I'm hoping to have some solid data on those two bands in the next couple of days, other activities permitting. I have run models between 20m and 160m, and the design should be adaptable for any bands in at least that range.

    Is it a kind of NVIS solution? What is the deployment height? It seems very interesting, please keep posting your updates.
