Takeoff Angle Path Analysis on 160M for EU and 40M for ZS and 3Y0Z

I am getting excited because maybe we will get some of that here at Chez KY6R . . . I wanted to use Google Earth (Classic) and check to see which direction 10 degrees is – and…

One really great use is to see how much radiation emanates from an amplifier at various power levels, and where the “drop off” is…
