Just have to throw the one end up off the ground best I can do. the new feedline is connected,  run it in thru the hole in the wall and clear a spot for the Yeasu to sit pretty. I promised wifey I'd run down to the vet with her to get one of our birdies beaks ground down so I'll have to try it out later.

Use an "AM Courtesy Filter" to limit transmit audio bandwidth  +-4.5 KHz, +-6.0 KHz or +-8.0 KHz when needed. 

Nothing like a new homebrew rig. Come into the shack, flip on the switches and everything works perfectly.

And, nothing like an old dog.

How thick is the wall? I've used the long straws for slurpees for JS tubes before.  Wink
It sucks when the wire is not quite stiff enough to poke thru. Grin

he's doing great. has settled in with all the other animals including the kitties. he will nibble on kitties like you would nibble on corn on the cob. just like a typewriter. doesnt hurt em. licks em. He's losing his separation anxiety problems, getting much better. Sleeping on the bed with us, something we will have to untrain him from.

he's lying own right behind me here. lemme get a quik snap. he does not like the camera flash so it's hard to get him to look into the camera.

Mr. Speedy is a joy and a member of the family.  Cheesy

gonna keep going on the antenna today - if I can just get the end off the ground and stuff the twinlead into the little hole in the wall I can hook back up everything on the wood desk in the corner and get back on.

I should explain - the little hole is about 10 feet off the ground.  Roll Eyes
