Good stuff.... I agree 100%. Unfortunately, more often than not newbies are left to fend for themselves. Some find forums like QRZ... Unfortunately, there are so many on the forum posed to show their knowledge that they either forget or don't understand the needs of a new ham... Years ago, Elmers took the hand of a newbie and explained and showed our hobby. Today, it's I'm smart and let me demonstrate why others aren't as smart... Love those on the forum who are constantly using equations and computer models to demonstrate their knowledge. A good working G5RV isn't rocket science... there are those out there as well as on the forum that want to make it rocket science. What ever happened to "Simple is Best"?
