DX Zone - Amateur Radio Antenna Projects

A good antenna Web Site -- ZL4AG

I personally find DX Zone hard to navigate. It often seems to turn up results with little context or ability to research the original author's references. However the site does link to an extraordinary amount of useful stuff. On this one I defer to experience. Thanks for the link Ralph. -- ZL1FAT
