Re: "It's the antenna, stupid!"



Looks like some very poor email etiquette.

Somewhere in this thread someone extracted two paragraphs from two different
emails from two different authors and merged them into the message below
(one of the paragraphs is mine).

This gave the impression that I was using 25W for ISS.. My original email in
its entirety  stated that I HAD made an ISS voice contact on 10W and was
able to do 25W worldwide (non-sat) contacts without a beam.

>From the East Coast, with the John's appropriately noted competition from
the rest of the country - that's is an achievement for non-steerable attic
mounted antennas.
