    ... actually he likes the bunnies he can pick off.

    For scale, it is sitting on a 4inch OD pipe that is 40ft long that is supporting one corner of my 160m-10m horizontal wire loop.

    That might result in some birdies on your received signal.

    "One way to eliminate those embarrassing "QQQ" replies."

    Q Signal: "QQQ:
    -Translation of "informal" Q Signal: "Wipe the bird droppings off your antenna and send with your left foot".
    -Implies: "Your CW signal and sending is atrocious. Get your act together."

    Related Q Signal: "QLF"
    -Translation of informal Q Signal: "Take of your shoe and send with your Left Foot"
    -Implies: "Your CW sending is atrocious. It couldn't be worse if you used your non-dominant foot!"

    History: From talking to WWII Navy operators these signals were in use by then. First mention in QST archives is 1958 with suggestion QLF be resurrected for use.

    There is a smart-ass raven in Fairbanks that PERFECTLY imitates the sound of a text message alert. I have learned to completely ignore this bird.
    p.s. ALL ravens are smart-asses.

    But not all smart-asses are ravens.;)

    This is very true. Although ravens have elevated it to a fine art. :)
