IIRC, that's a very minimally longer list than the last time I saw it.
Doves occasionally sit on the top of my MFJ loop - a couple of inches away from the top of the loop and right next to the capacitor. Most don't notice when I key-down at 100 watts, although one did raise a leg once. I had hoped for a "poof" and a blaze of burning feathers, but no luck!
Dove poop on the loop lowers your efficiency by 5% per turd.
Wouldn't a turd be 33.3%? And so two turds is 66.666%?
Oh, wait, I forgot this is in dB. A turd of a dB is an attenuation factor of 0.926. Carry on.
