Hi all,
Regarding the discussions on antennas - I am not into any debate about the  
pro's and con's, but would
just like to encourage anyone to just have a go. 
Sure the argument will always prevail perhaps under the " Must do Better"  
comment and I am sure
that one can always improve or progress with experimenting -  (  AMATEUR 
To verify my point I have just received a QSL card from   " Nick"   - 
KB5RVT confirming our contact on AO-7
mode B   (SSB).    
MY QTH is WALES in the UK  and "Nick"  in So.Burlington,  Vermont.
I was using my  "ELK" antenna (horizontal)  and Nick has  confirmed that he 
was using an ARROW  YAGI.
Thanks for the contact " NICK"  - A great pleasure to work you via the  old 
bird still working pleased to say.
QSL card on the way with thanks.
