What can I learn? WB5EMX 2 weeks ago
Good comments, Martin, thank you.
I've old and newer Termans. I have relatively old Antenna Books. The answer to much about a good signal is all in feedlines, which can be very, very complicated to understand well. Thus my questions. Again, Martin, Thanks!

I have a Six Meter Transverter, and a Two Meter SSB Rig. My experience base is HF. I have a simple SWR bridge that I'm sure was designed for HF use. If I trim an antenna and measure the SWR, is that adequate to run without worries?
Are Transmatches used on these bands? If so, what kind? If not, how is matching done?
Are Feedlines usually Coax, or is window line used up here? Thanks!

Radials Question WB5EMX 2 weeks, 1 day ago
4) What would be the cost of using aluminum wire for radials, I know about the oxidation factor, just wondering about the conductivity issue. I have a half mile of electric fence wire waiting in the wings. Any thoughts on that?
