Here's a list of equipment for sale within Florida.
Pete thought that there might be interest among our HF ops.

Tower, Rotator, Antenna Equipment for Sale
A simple ground plane antenna is easy to build LINK. It can go in your attic (if room) or on a simple pole outside (1" schedule 40 PVC might work).
This might be a good excuse for you to put up an outside antenna.
We will NOT be testing this month
I will post details about our on-the-air meeting here as we finalize the plan.
I was contacted by someone from this web site and asked to make this information available to our members.
I looked it over and it does seem to be very good information, so here is a link to:
