    How many of you hear the term "resident frequency" on the bands?

    I would say they have a drinking problem.

    Never, 52 years on air, never but I have heard "Diapole".

    I've heard you need a balum with those diapoles.

    Is your diapole antenna on the flat side or droppy draws?

    I have heard on the air the terms SRW's, South Carolina Window Antenna, 73's, "Spent fifty bucks on the good RV5 antenna for my FT-5000", needing coax with ends, and I'm sure there are a few more I just can't remember off the top of my head. Ham Radio, what a great hobby for the past 55 years.

    I'd like to get one of those analyzers. Hard to justify, once I get suitable working antenna(s), then I probably wouldn't use it very often after that. I am in an HOA, once I got something working, not sure that I would go try to reinvent the wheel, but then again I may move the heck out of here, LOL
    I got the SAA-2N VNA, but there are differences between what that reads and what the 7300 reads. Trying to figure out why that is. The 3 point calibration is very straightforward, there are no deviations that I can see, but without testing a known value, it is hard to rate the quality of the results. I got the unit from HRO, so I am assuming this thing is the real McCoy.
