Re: My aerial @ shack


I know what you mean Dave, I could do with some sound proofing on mine, might try thick curtains first if its only to get rid of the echo in there.
Put my g5rv up today and now realise that its in the path of where I wanted the beam, Doh!

Re: My aerial @ shack


Not sure if I want to sell the cobra though, I may keep it, it does look good and its not costing anything to keep it - and I know I`ll be sorry if I did sell it, like a lot of my other gear, doh!
Things I should have kept
Mint Lincoln, one owner from new-me with mint astatic teardrop, again new both boxed, mint astatic silver eagle and turner +3 mic, ah well all gone to good homes.

Heil mic came yesterday and seems to be working very well, first call was into 88 Cuba and next call 136 so it works emoticon
No doubt it can be tweaked a bit but pleased with it, and at just under £100 for the mic and Heil-Yaesu lead the price was about half the UK tag.
