    So I love eHam.
    You ask a simple binary question with a yes or no answer and you get mathematical equations, several stories of "I once knew a guy" . Yes, with a long explanation, no with a longer explanation. And three posts of utter nonsense about things that don't exist and can't be done due to things like laws of physics.

    So I posted a simple question.
    Can you connect multiple amplifiers up being driven by a single radio and each amplifier being connected to a separate antenna. Sort version is running 3KW by means of dividing the transmitter into TWO paths and each path having its own amplifier.
    Of course the answer is NO. 1.5KW is it... no matter how you try to explain it away.

    So after two pages of yes, no, maybe so and I am too drunk to post but here I am anyway. I added to the fun.
    I have a BIG tower. Like really big. 240 tall and 40 across big. So, the DUGA array design, or a section of it, could be built down one face. Yes, I considered it, but it would screw with EVERY antenna below it as far as the western pattern was concerned. I also have a battery plant, which is 48 volt and would run a bunch of LDMOS HF modules.

    I know I should be ashamed of myself,
    but when you put on your profile that you either know EVERYTHING, or that you NEVER make a mistake. Well, you are asking for it.

    eHam is still a thing? :D

    You can stir the pot all you want, just don't smoke it. You'll end up like chucky.

    I guess that lock down in Ohio is really affecting people there.
