Re: Time to put a Short Wave in the Storm Shelter

Re: OK, another question for HAMS

You answered your own Question. Antenna's work the best when matched for the freq you want to tune in. Long wires work well. But at the lower frequency they can get quit long(200 ft+)

Re: head phone help

Thanks for the help. I had two problems. First I did not have the software fully loaded for the headphone. And second since they were installed after echo link. I had to get into the settings for echolink and tell it to use the usb headphone as default device.

thanks again for the help.

Re: Intro, Licensing, Equipment, check! Wait, antennas! help

It all depends on where you live and the size of your wallet :D
do you live in an apartment or on a ranch?
Is there zoning regs for towers?
Do you have a hoa?
