Re: JOhn Kraus antennas



For lighter Krause reading, I highly recommend Big Ear or Big Ear Two by
Krause "a personal, behind-the-scenes account of astronomers, engineers and
inventors" and the design and construction of the Ohio State University's
radio telescope, Big Ear from a hams point of view...very inexpensive "used"
on Amazon and also available in many libraries....ham radio the way it used
to be...
