Power loss from TX INSIDE a ROOM? K6PAA on 3/10/18
Does anyone have any ideas about how much power you would tend to loose (in general) with, say, a 15 ft MFJ “HamStick” Dipole (ie now Hamtenna”) on a tripod in an upstairs ROOM vs just having the same antenna/tripod OUTSIDE in a field?
Any thoughts appreciated!

% Energy lost with Inverter to pwr COMPUTER? K6PAA on 15/6/18
Re Powering your COMPUTER with a Battery in the field: Does anyone have a ballpark estimate of what % energy you lose by using an inverter to go from a 12 V DC battery to 110 V A/C if your Computer (Mac) needs A/C to run, and cannot run on 12 V DC directly?

Also, any suggestions re an EFFICIENT, QUIET (rfi-wise), Inverter?

Any estimates/ideas/suggestions appreciated!
Thanks- Peter K6PAA
Is there a Category for OLIVIA for Field Day? K6PAA on 29/5/18
Does anyone know if there is a Category for OLIVIA for Field Day?
And, if so, what frequencies would be best on 20 m and 40 m?
And, if so, use 8/250? 16/500? Or?
Thanks-
Peter K6PAA
