    More interestingly, does his wife know about all that?

    But do you have an aerial with a flat response over that bandwidth?

    Sure. My Discone does rather well.

    Good one! I thought that was for real ... until I noticed who posted it.

    Here you go. Flat across the bands...any frequency. Worked Europe on 20m and around the US on 40.

    I would send the computer down the road... The internet is just "interactive TV" with lots of ads and online stores...

    Nice try, but Comet beat you to it. This has been available for years :)

    I'm sure it does at VHF, but how big a screen would you need to be able to view the 50MHz wide display meaningfully? At VHF there could be some super-strong signals around that the barn-door front-end won't like, surely?
