    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Here are some pictures of my Antron 99 on my chimney. My house is on a big hill. The chimney is 30-35 feet above the base...but 100 or more relatively to the ground around. The antenna is 15-20 feet with an extra 3 feet of the mast...the mast is 10 feet, 3 feet is exposed above the chimney. I used 4 "W" brackets, with self tapping screws. I also ran a 40 foot grounding wire to the ground. There is a 10 foot copper grounding rod that we drove into the ground with a sledge hammer and a cap on top in the worst dirt in the state of PA. It is mostly shale. I used regular connections for the grounding wire. The coax is 50ft and temporarily goes through a window. I don't have my base station complete yet. My pictures could be found here on Google. http://picasaweb.google.com/mbrulo/Antenna

Antrons are GREAT antennas - I have talked all over the world in the past using one. Show off your base station as soon as you get a chance.

Yes they are supposedly great for the 10 meter ham band.

And I used a Ranger RCI-2950! The old work horse of sidebanding! :cool:
