John and Mal
. A tooth brush would cost more
and melt down at about 11 watts when dry, and less when wet.
One mustn't let the facts get in the way of a good opinion I suppose... It's
just that my aerial in GM is held up with old toothbrushes and It happily
takes a kilowatt in the rain and has done for 9 months, sorry about that. I
just wanted to pass on an eco friendly tip, I bet they're lighter than
ship's insulators as well..........
You'll certainly have to minimise the resistance in the loop and feeder
before it will work OK but by all means give it a try, the results will
speak for themselves. It is an experimenters band still I hope!!
Enough about toothbrushes and other insulators now I think.....
