What bands are you interested in working?
Well HF is my goal at the moment. I went ahead and picked up a Gap Titan from another ham this weekend. When it's a couple more degrees warmer, I'll dig a hole in my backyard for a mounting pole and setup my groundplane.
But in general, I wouldn't mind discussing the subject for a moment. I live near an Airport and thusly have all kinds of comms in the air. I'd like to attach a Discone for the VHF/UHF scanner stuff, a high-gain VHF/UHF antenna mounted higher for 2m/70cm. The eggbeaters will suffice for now for satellite work until I build a az/el system for V/U/S/L bands. One area I have questions would be for Military/Commercial satellite listening and 2.4ghz stuff (since I have hotels near by that have wifi internet services for those times when one wants to be anonymous)... what are the best antennas for this work?
I wouldn't mind figuring out a good antenna/embedded computer for these too:http://doodlelabs.co...band-dl435.html
Because along with a 3d printer, this is high on my list for the coming year.
