Dummy load is the significant part of this statement because some low antennas
including yours are but dummy loads. I am happy that you are saving a file of
my observations. I kill all messages when read, otherwise I would need Tril a
bytes of disk space to file all the message that I receive on email, mostly
complimentary about my expriments and achievements on LF. There is the odd
disagreement like yourself but I do understand the other mans point of view
and do not get upset. Try and improve your signal Rik so that I can hear you
properly and not have to use LAZY MANS CW.

Did I miss(understand) something ?
