...about the 5/8 wave X 3 two meter ground plane on top of a 40' tower in the back. And Comet Antenna's are very shiny.

I think it looks cool.

I don't know what to tell her.

So much for that 160 meter beam.

Warn her in advance: If she thought that BRD was bad, HRD* is TEN TIMES WORSE!


*Ham Radio Disease. There's a subset of this condition called HRAA: Ham Radio Antenna Affliction, which is where the term "Antenna Farm" comes.


ETA Pics required. Of tower AND wife.

Amateurs who get this affliction have been known to have more metal on their roofs and in their backyards than they have in their automobiles.

Looks like somebody is going to have a very hard time selling the idea of a screwdriver ant. on the car.

yup, definately need pics of wife and antenna to put on the balance scales of justice prior to giving advice...




just tell her every time she sees the tower she should "see" shoes.

Paint the bottom facing side of the antenna (and tower) sky blue.

Or, if it is near trees, paint it brown and green...

Primer grey also works well.
