I just put up another antenna yesterday, a fan dipole. We'll see how that one works out. I did notice that it works better in some circumstances than my 43 foot vertical but of course is not the answer to all problems.
I suppose even a 200 foot tower with a 9 element Yagi really isn't the answer.
Oh yeah. The other day I dropped one right on top of a certain gossip that is often giving the Mrs. a bad time.
I was wandering in to pay for gas at the local 7-11 when a friend of mine and the gossipy old woman were both waiting in line. My friend asked me how I was doing.
I said. "Pretty good. Yesterday the DA dropped the cannibalism charges against me so I don't have that hanging over my head anymore."
He grinned and knew it was just apply anywhere BS and played along. "That's good to hear," he replied.
Ten bucks to a stale Krispy Kreme it will get back to me by tonight or tomorrow. Someone will call me and let me know the old hag is spreading the story that I was arrested for cannibalism.
This is a pretty good way of destroying the credibility of gossips.
You give them something totally outrageous to spread and they make fools of themselves.
