Re: OAUSA Net - May 28, 2020 - Outdoor Adventure Trailers

Final thoughts:

I would still choose to build and do have plans to help build another. Maybe.

There are no formal drawings for my trailer as I new it was going to evolve over the course of the build.

This first “try” changed drastically in both size and configuration.

Re: OAUSA Net - May 7, 2020 - Ham Radio Antennas for HOAs and Apartments

Who looks up in a tree anyway! I had this antenna up for two months before my Neihbor noticed it and only because I was standing in the middle of his yard staring at it. He always got a kick out of it and was sad when the steel pole bent in half in a terrible windstorm. B903E59A-29FC-4C02-90E6-37024...
