Had one 28 odd years ago and it worked brilliant, so decided to start there. Lol. Saying that was looking at other antennas the othere day,it's a money pit. But I am enjoying being back on,although ssb is new to me

There awesome. I was a bit worried about the button based menu, but it's so intuitive, took me about 20 minutes to work it all out. The only thing I had to look up in the book was the crazy way you adjust the rf gain mic gain and rf power. Is yours expanded. Mine is uk leagle at present.

Yea, I've done a couple of mock exams online and if they were actually proper exams would of passed. But it's different actually doing it. I think there is a free corse online you can do.

For DX it doesn't matter that your antenna is only a few feet off the ground, height is more important for locals and horizontal antennas.

We will see . I have a ham friend who has spent the last 40 yrs trying to get me to take it. It was a lot harder I think back in the day of a and b license and m code. And yea I need it up higher to get further locally,there are quite a few stations near me but sadly the word muppet was invented for at least 30% of them. There are some really nice ones . But if my setup is at its maximum it would be better.
